So many years have passed, siiice the first sheets of this 
volume were committed to the press, that the Editor is 
bound to ackuoTiiedge "with thankfulness the patience with 
which the Members of the Camden Society have awaited 
its completion. His apology for the delay ^^ill be found, 
not only in pubhc and private duties which allowed him 
little leisure, but also in the fact, which he has mentioned 
in the " Introduction," that the work assumed a character 
materially different from that which was contemplated, 
when he engaged to edit for the Society *' The Domesday 
of St. Paul's of the year 1222." The pledge then given 
would have been redeemed by a brief account of that 
Manuscript, a catalogue of names and places, and of its 
general contents. But when other documents were added 
by way of Appendix to the Doinesday, which showed the 
relation of the manors to the cathedral as a landed 
estate, held to farm by its own members, and occupied 
by a tenantry according to the general custom of tlie age, 
it was evident, that the inaterials, "\\hicli were thus col- 
lected, belonged not to Church history in particidar, but 
were illustrative of the aeneral history of the Landed 



VllZ PEEP ACE. 

proprietary of England, as well as of tlie condition of 
those classes who were occupied in the cultivation of the 
soil. The work was no longer limited to one period, the 
early part of the thirteenth century, but comprised within 
it a documentary history of the Manorial property of the 
Cathedral, of its tenures and leases, and of the receipt and 
expenditure of the income derived from it duriiig a period 
of 150 years, from the middle of the twelfth to the end of 
the thirteenth century. The more carefully the Editor 
applied himself to the study of each document, as he 
compared it with others of an earlier or later }>criod, the 
wider was the field of inquiry which ^^as opened to him, 
and the more interesting was the result, as the conclusion 
was pressed upon him, that the contents of this volume 
form a link in the connexion between Anglo-Saxon and 
Anglo-Xorman society, enabling us to trace back to cen- 
turies prior to the Conquest some of the features, by wliich 
a"Ticultm'al tenm-es in Emi'land continued to be distin- 
guished, as late as the end of the fourteenth century. 

The Editor has no reason to look back with regret 
upon the hours which he has spent in the study and 
illustration of this collection of documents, much less 
to account them as misemployed. The contemplation 
of the peculiar character of society in a remote age, 
and the discovering how it agrees with, or differs from, 
that in which we ourselves are placed, must always be 
instructive to him who believes, that the varied condition 
of mankind, in every age and country, is as truly tlie 



PllEFACE. t:r 

TTork of the Providence of God, as the creation and gene- 
ration of man is a proof of His power. It is the aim of 
antiquarian study, to learn the history not so much of 
individuals as of man. to develop the acts and lialnts of 
nations, to describe the phases of society, and to note the 
different conditions, political, social, moi'al, and religious, 
under v.-hich the human race has prolonged its existence. 
Prom the knowledge of antiquity the historian derives 
the light, which lightens the dark places in the vista of 
the past. It is this knowledge, which has the telescopic 
power of overcoming the distance of time, and of enabling 
us to see vdih distinctness, and to take an enlarged view, 
not only of what men have accomplished in past ages, 
but also of all that God has done in the world, and how 
he has made himself known to man ; and, though some 
persons may account antiquarian study useless, because 
the practice of the past may not, as they think, furnish 
us with the knowledge which is now needed, or because 
the experience of former times is inapplicable to our 
own, there may be still much that is edif^^ing and in- 
structive in these pursuits, and ^^"hich may conduce to 
individual, if not to public good. Antiquity may teach 
the personal lesson of humility to the ablest lawyer, or 
statesman, or divine; for if candidly studied it will show, 
tliat our forefathers were in theii* age, and under their 
circumstances, as wise, and prudent, and learned as we 
are in our own, and that, however inferior they might be 
to ourselves in respect of physical science, yet in acute-

ness of perceprion. in strength of intellect, in the poT\-er 
of disputation, and in the application and adjustment of 
fixed principles of jurisprudence, tliere are few persons 
in this age. who are not surpassed by the lawyers and 
divines of ancient times. 

These remarks upon the general advantage of anti- 
quarian study having been premised, the Editor would 
apprise the reader of the particular conclusions, which he 
has drawn from the study of the documents here printed, 
and wliich he Iids endeavoured to a certain extent to 
embody in the Introduction, and which are these : that 
the Manorial system of England is of purely Anglo- 
Saxon origin : that the great mass of the population 
was bound to their lords by civil rather than by military 
service ; that in the local customs of the Manors may be 
discovered the nature of the cultivation of the coimtry, 
the different orders of society, and the relation ui which 
they stood to each other ; that one system of juris- 
prudence prevailed, which owed its origin, not to the 
will of the sovereign, but to the adjustment of rights 
acknowledged to exist between man and man; and that 
if the existence of law, and of right, and of well-defined 
duties is an evidence of civilisation, it may be fairly 
cpiestioned, whether after the cessation of the Ptoman 
power and during the establishment of the Anglo-Saxon 
dominion England was ever inhaldted by a barbarous 
and lawless people. 

The Editor has had it in his power to examine only 



PREPACE. XI 

a ^Q\y documents bclonii'ms: to other Cathedrals or to 
^Monastic bodies ; he has, hoAYever. seen ciioucih to con- 
vmce liini, that many Lie^cr-books and Chartularies still 
exist, in whicli there are very complete records of the 
landed property of the Cathedral or ]\Ionastery. and which 
would throw still clearer light upon the character of the 
agricultural population, and the internal condition of 
the country. 

"^Vith respect to the annotations and illustrations of the 
documents in tliis collection, the Editor has to observe, 
that they have taken the form commonly used bi editiag 
classical authors. It is supposed that the reader has 
the work before lum, and that facts are stated, or words 
occur, which can 1)e illustrated by contemporary history, 
or by j)hiloiogical research. In attempting in such cases 
to fulfil the wishes, or to meet the wants, of the reader, 
conjectmT must occasionally take the place of certain in- 
formation. The Editor has however rarely had recourse 
to conjecture without stating Ms grounds ; and, if he 
shotild have fallen into error, he will be glad to be 
instructed by those who are better informed. 

There is yet one duty which the Editor lias to perform 
for the satisfaction of the reader — that of describing 
the form and character of the manuscripts no^v for the 
first time printed. 

It beuiir convenient to take notice of them in an order 
different from that in -^-liich tbey are placed in this volume, 
the Editor will first adcbess the attention of the reader

This manuscript is preserved in the Bodleian Library

transcript of it to his friend the Bcv. II. 0. Cox, the

the early part of the foui'teenth century ; its title distin- 
guishes it from the Statuta Minora, as being a larger 
volume, and written in a larger hand, the contents of both 
being nearly the same. The other three books are those 
known as Book K, Book I, and Book L. the letters by

being the Liber Goodman, and one, not then lettered.

INTRODUCTION. 



It ^^ill appear from the Table of Contents, that the present volume 
contains a collection of document? \vhich, with one cNccption, are still 
preserved in the Archives of the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's, London, 
and vrhicli exhibit the nature and extent of the Manorial property belonging 
to that body in the li'th and loth centuries. The volume has, therefore, 
assumed a character materially different from that contem.plated by the 
Editor, ^vhen the Council of the Camden Society kindlv accepted his offer 
to superintend the publication of the document, which stands foremost in 
this collection, being " A Domesday of St Paul's,'' or, as it is otherwise 
entitled, "An Inquisition of the Manors of the Chapter of St. Paul's, in 
the year 12-i?," and which bad escaped the notice of the former historians 
of the Cathedral. Dugdale and Newcourt. For this change no apology is 
perhaps necessary ; for, though students of English history, and espe- 
cially those who are conversant with the contents of the Exchequer 
Domesday, would have highly prized such a document as the St. Paul's 
Domesday, though printed alone, the Editor was unwilling to lose the 
opportunity, which was so liberally conceded to him by the Camden Society, 
of adding to the " Domesday of St. Paul's '" those documents of an earlier, 
as well as a later period, which he had found among the records of the 
Cathedral, which might throw still greater light upon the nature of Manorial 
property, by exhibiting the relation which existed between the Chapter as 
Lords of the manors, and the Firmarii, their Lessees ; the profit which, in 
the way of rent and of produce, accrued to the Chapter from their rtianors ; 
the method in which it was paid ; and the distribution of it amongst the 
members of the Cathedral. 

The Manors, the history of which, a? part of the possessions of the 
CaMD. SOC. h 



11 JNTRODUCTInX. 

Chapter of St. Paul's, is illustrated by the contents of this volume, ore 
as follows : — 

Kadenden. Kenesworth. .Sandun, Luffen- -^ . , „ 

, 'i T- 1 1 " )-ii'^ 1-hc countv of Herts, 

liale. bratiey. j 

Beauchamp. Wicham. Adulvesnasa, Tid- 

\volditun, Tillingham. Barling, Runwell,. in the county of Essex. 

Norton, Xastok. Chingefcrd, ' 

Sutton and Drayton, in Middlesex. 
BerneS; in Surrey. 

The order in which they are thus arranged, is that in which they stand 
in the Domesday of St. Pau"."s, of 1222, and in which they were visited, 
in the progress made tr;at year (being the second year after the translation 
of Saii;t Thonaas of Car.tertury, see p. So) by Robert de Watford, ihe 
Dean., and Henry dc Cornhill. the Chancellor of the church. 

The Records of the Cathedral exhibit no conclusive evidence as to the 
time or the circumstances under which either the Chapter as a bodv, or the 
Prebendaries as individuals, became possessed corporately and individuall}' 
of their lands and manors. The Cathedral has indeed been supposed to 
possess charters of Anglo-Saxon kings. JEthelbcrht. Athelstan. Eadgar. and 
Eadward; ranging from the 7th to the 11th century, granting to the 
Cathedral divers lands and liberties attached thereto. These charters are 
Xos. 982. ]126. 1127, 1259. and 913, in that most valuable work the 
Codex Dipiomaticus of Mr. Kemble. The lands thus said to have been 
granted can be traced in the Exchequer Domesdav, as belonging to the 
Cathedral at the time of the Conquest, and it does not appear that anv 
addition was made to them at any subsequent period. This circumstance 
does not invalidate the charge of spuriousness, which has been adduced 
against those charters. Two inferences, however, mav fairly be drawn 
from it — first, that at the time of their fabrication the liberties mentioned 
in them as emanating from the bounty of the early kings did exist and were 
possessed by the church, as therein indicated ; and secondly, that when 
these grants were produced as genuine, the possessions and liberties 
mentioned in them had belonged to the church for so long a period, that 
such. docun;ents might vrell bo used, to account for what had already 
become prescriptive by time and usage, and to confirm the tradition which

IXTl;ODUCTION. 

had assicrned to a remote periol the original ncquiremer.t of the ]iroperty by 
the church. The inimor of TJllingham. in the hundred of Dingey in the 
county of E^sex. was accounted 'h.e most ancient po5?e5;ion. and tlie gift 
of it ascribed to .-EthL-lberht ; that of Sar.dun. Erdeley. Bcauchr.nip, 
Wicham. Tidwolditun, I\unwt-ih .-EJulveinasn. Driyton. and Berne? to 
Athelstau ; that of Nastok to Eadgar ; and of Barling and Chingefurd 
to the Confessor Eadward. At whatever yieriod thoie charters were 
written,, it is evident that the writt-rs of them knew how to distinguish tlie 
more ancient possessions from those acquired at a later period, namely 
Nastok. Kenesworth. and Norton, and upon which the Exchequer Domesday 
throws some light. V\"bether Nastok was orlginal!\ acquired bv purchase, as 
described in the charter uf Ei.dg;.r (No. l:.'o9 i, may be do\;bt:'ul ; but the 
statome:.t in the Exchequer Domesday that the canons had obtained it "ex 
dono Regis'" ° from ^\'illiam. renders it probable, that the church had already 
some richts there, whilst the late possession of Kenesworth and Norton, as 
deduced from the same authority, accords with the omission of those places 
in the supposititious charters; since we read of Kenesworth,^ " Hoc mancrium 
tennit Leuwinus cilt de Rege E. ;" and of Norton.^ that it belonged T. R. E. 
to a ladv named Godida All the Manors of the Cathedral uliich were 
visited in I •222, and are described in the St. Paul's Demesday of that year, 
are mentioned by name in the Exchequer Domesday, Sutton excepted, 
which is not there described, except as that part of the Episcopal Manor 
of Fulbam v.-hich was held by the Canons of St. Paul's, which contained 
five hides, and was " de victu canonicorum.'' 

The Domesday of St. Paul";, it must 'be observed, does not iucludi;- all 
the lands belonging to the Prebendaries of the church, as the endowments 
or " corpses " of their Prebends, but only those Manors which formed the 
" Communa." the revenue and produce of which were appropriated to the 
support and sustenance of all the members of the Cathedral in regular gra- 
dation, from the highest personage, the Dean, to the humblest servitor, the 
Doorkeeper of the brewery. It i? remarkable that, though the Statutes of 
the Cathedral describe the thirty Prebendaries as forming with the Bishop 
<' unum corpus," of which he is the head, there is no evidence of his sharing 
with them anv part of the revenue, or of his living in intercourse with them.

IV INTRODUCTION. 

The Bishops of London appear to have possessed their Manors in the time 
of the Anglo-Saxon kings in their own right, for tliere are no traces of any 
of the Episcopal lands having at any time belonged to the Csthedral. At 
what period certain lands were attached to each of the thirty Prebendaries, 
and the Manors described in the St. Paul's Doniesday separated from the 
rest to form the " Communa," is unknown. There is reason to believe 
that this apportionment was begun, if not completed, before the Conquest : 
for in the Exchequer Domesday* we read tliat the Canons Durandus and 
Gueri held lands at Twyford, Radulphus at Rugmere, and Walter at Pan- 
eras : and to the Prebend denominated " Consnmpta per Mare," lands 
were at one time attached in the parish of Walton-le-Soken : the catastrophe 
denoted bv the name of the Prebend, having been supposed to occur about 
the time of the Conquest. The locality of these Prebendal Manors is 
interesting. Thev are remarkable as much for their distance from as for 
their proximity to London. Thus we find two Prebends in Bedfordshire 
now called Caddington Major and Caddington ]Minor, adjoining the Chapter 
Manor of Cadendon in Herts, but which originally were one IManor belong- 
ing to the Chapter:*^ the Prebends of Sneating and Consumpla per Mare 
are in "Walton-le-Soken in the hundred of Tendring in Essex, within 
the manor of Adulvesnasa ; the Prebends of Ealdland, Weldland, and 
Reculverland, are at Tillingham in Dengy hundred, in the same county ; 
the prebend of Chiswick is in Middlesex. Of the remainder of the Pre- 
bends, twenty-two in number, no less than nine are at Willesdon in 
Middlesex : viz , Willesdon, Bromesbury, Brownswood, Chamberlain 
Wood, Mapesbury, Xeasdon, Harleston, Oxgate, and Twyford; whilst the 
rest of them, thineen in number: viz., Pancras, Rugmere, Totenhall, 
Kentish Town, Islington, Xewiugton, Holborn, Portpool, Finsbury, Ploxtcn, 
Wenlock's Barn, ]Mora, and Eald Street, are found to occupy a belt of land 
of no inconsiderable breadth, from the walls of the citv of London towards 
the north, extending from Pancras on the west to the Episcopal ■Manor of 
Stepney on the east. 

The rents of these lands appear to have been always separately enjoyed 
by the Prebendaries, and there seemjs little doubt that each Prebend was in 
itself sutSciently valuable to render the great majority of the Prebendaries

indinerent as to obtaining that increase of their income?, which was afTorded 
bv residence at the Cathedral. To this subject, however, it will be necessary 
to rerer: Leroaficr ; the attention of tlic reader being now to be directed to 
that T'Ortion of the hinds of the Cathedral, which forms the subject of the 
St. PauTs DomesdaV; v.hich was under tlie management of the Dean and 
Chapter, and in the revenues of which all the members of the Church, the 
thirty Prebendaries, the Vicars, the Minor Canons, and the Servants of 
the Church had a proportionate interest. 

Before we proceed further, it may be right to apprize the reader, tlsat he 
must no: expect to find anvthing in the ju'escnt collection of documents, 
which may explain the relation in which the cathedrals of the Anglo-Saxon 
or Anglo-Norman times stood to the Church at large, as places of solemn 
worsh'p. as seminaries of learning, or as affording opportunities for retire- 
ment from the world. The religious character of the Cathedral could only 
be exhibited bv the publication of its ancient "Piegula Canonica," and of its 
Statutes. In the present work we have to consider the Cathedral onlv as a 
Corporation possessed of Manors and Churches, standing in the same relation 
to the Crown as other Tenants in capite, and having to fulfil to their Tenants 
the same duties, and receive from them the same services as ether Lords 
cf Manors : and if the conduct of the Dean and Chapter, in the manage- 
n:ent cf their Manors, was in accordance with the general practice of 
ct'.itr landlord^, it would afiford us a view of the condition of the cotmtry 
a: large, and help to explain the progress of those changes, which have 
taken place in the relation between landlord and tenant, in the mode of 
pavment of rent, and the general cultivation of the land, which have made 
airriculrjral England what it now is. It must, however, be borne in mind, 
that since Corporations generally, and particularly ecclesiastical Corpora- 
tions, have less power than individuals to change their customs in accord- 
ance with the changes produced by time, their proceedings may at all 
times be supposed to have an old-fashioned character, and to indicate the 
general customs of a former period, rather than an exact picture of the 
txistins- habits of the time. 

The Domesdays of St. Paul's ere records of Inquisitions. Thus we 
read at page 109, "Annus ab incarnatione Domini miilesimus centtsimus 

octogesimus primus facta fait inquisitio manerlorum beati Pauli 

per Radulfuni de Diceto Decanum Lundonien^em, Anno primo sui deca- 



VI INTriODUCTIOX.

Chingeford per Rohcrmm decar.um. He::;ricuni cancellarium anno 

secundo post translaticnem beati Thoms3 martyris Cantuariensis Archiepis- 
copi.'" The Inquisition is the recorded verdict of a Jurv. the directions for 
their impanelinent being as follov, i : " For the more easy discovery of the 
truth, we have decreed, that, according to the extent of the ^Manors and the 
number of the inhabitants, a greater or lesser number be chosen and bound 
by the oblig-ation of an oath acn:iniitered to ihtm. that, in ans^-ering tlie 
interrogatories, they will not knowingly either suppress the truth or assert 
what is false." ^ The names of tht; Jurors will be found prefixed to the In- 
quisition of each Manor, tht-ir nurr.ber varyir;g according to the forepoirjg 
direction, the largest jury being composed of twelve, others of eight or 
nine, and the smallest, that of Norton, of only three. The Inquisitions are 
dated on the day of holding the visitation ; but it is manifest from the 
nature of the return, that much time must have been spent upon it pre- 
vicuslv. The books we now possess may be regarded, as engrossed copies 
of the Inquisition of each Manor, written at leisure, and transcribed from 
the original minutes into a hook. 

The fragm-ent of the Domesday of Ralph de Diceto, (seepage 110.) 
which records the day upon which the Inquisition of each Manor was taken, 
enables us to describe the progress made by the Dean, and tv,o of his brother 
Canons, to visit their manors in the year I iSl. 

The Inquisitions began on the 6th of January, and ended on the SOth of 
the same month, comnienci::2: at Kadendon, near Duustaplc, and termi- 
nating at Sutton, near Chiswick in Middlesex. The whole period is t\\entv- 
three days; but, since at p. 112 it is distinctly said that the Inquisition was 
made m twenty-two days, we must assume that the dean and his brethren 
had been staying at Kadendon when the Inquisition commenced, and that 
the period of twenty-tv/o days" denotes the length of timie actually occupied 
in the visitation after their leaving Kadendon.

The days of the vreek upon v.hich the progress was made have been 
determined by the tables in Nitolss's Clironology. The Dominical letter 
of the year 1181 being D, and Ecster Day falling in llmt year on April 5. 
it follows that the Sundays occupied in the progress ^vere the 11th and the 
ISth of January, and this appears to be confirmed by the fact that the 
yisitation at Kirkeby on the ISth was held in the church. 

Inqui-itions of this formal kind do not appear to haye been yery fre- 
Quently made, the earliest upon record being that just mentioned, by 
Radulph de Diceto. in llSl : the next that of 1222, by the Dean Robert 
de Watford, and which forms the chief subject of this yolume : whilst a 
third, that of 1279. by Dean Baudake. forms a portion of Book I., 
new remaining in the Archives. Articles of Visitation of a later period are 
extant; but the three Visitations of ll&I. 1222, and 1279 are those alone 
which now remain containing a regular inscription of all the names of the 
tenants, with their rents, ranks, and services, and forming a record resem- 
bling, in its general features, the Exchequer Domesday, but with greater 
minuteness of description. It was probably the progress of time, removing 
the men of one generation and replacing them by another, which rendered 
it necessary to have a fresh enrolment of nam.es and tenures. As respects 
the far greater number of the tenants, the claims of the Lord of the Manor 
wore limited to customary rents and fi^ed service ; an increased rate of rent 
was to be obt-ained only for newly-inclosed lands, or lands belonging to 
the demesne : so that the chief object of the Inquisition was the identifi- 
cation of the persons by whom the services cue were to be paid. On the 
part then of the Dean and Chapter, a new Domesday was not tlie prelude 
to any fresh exaction : it was rather a renewed declaration of rights and 
duties between the owner and the occupier of the soil, as well as a solemn 



IXTEODUCTIOX. IX 

i'/jquirv whc-thcr !:nv of the riglits of llie tenants had been unlawfully 
r.cquii-fd. It was the verdict of a jury, as to the rights which the parties 
possessed, and not a record of the re-letting of the land. 

In their use, not less than in their form, tlie Domesdays of St. Paul's 
resembled the Domesdav of the Exchequer. That census defined the rights 
of the Sovereign, bv recording the number of hides and the values of the 
manors : and in like manner the Domesdays of St. Paul's, in recording the 
holdings and services of the tenants, virtually limited the rights of the 
Chapter to the receipt of those payments, which had been in a solemn 
manner ascertained. It is a common notion that the Domesday book of 
William is a work entirely original in its character ; that it was compiled in 
order to enable the Sovereign to extort money from the people, and is 
chiefly interesting as being the record of the subjugation of England to a 
foreign power. The discoverr of other Domesday books, compiled for the 
use of other bodies and persons, and which are not records of violent 
transfer of propenv bv war, but official testimonies of quiet possession of 
land? by inheritance, by grant, or by purchase in times of peace, will how- 
ever encourage us to take a more charitable view of the Exchequer Domes- 
dav itself: whilst the careful comparison of the Pioyal with the other 
Domesdays may lead to the conclusion that the Exchequer Domesday, 
considered as a whole, is rather the record of ancient relations existing 
between the landlords and their tenants than of the newly-acquired rights 
of the Norman lords, and that the state of society described in it was 
not one newly formed by the Conquest, but that which had e>;isted in 
England under the Anglo-Saxon kings. 

Sir Henrv Ellis, in his learned Introduction to Domesday, mentions four 
books of the same denomination. The first, a Domesday belonging to the 
Dean and Chapter of York ; the second, that belonging to the Nuns of 
Haliwell : the third, one which existed in the archives of the Earls of 
Chester : the founh, the Domesday of Ralph de Diccto belonging to St. 
Paul's. In order to complete the catalogue, we must now reckon in the 
number of Domesdays — 1. The Liber ^Vintoniensis of Henry I. printed in 
the Appendix to Domesday. 2. The survey of the tenants in ihe city of 
Winchester (which forms the second part of the Liber V^'intoniensis), made 
by command of Henry Bishop of Winchester in 1148. 3. The Rolden Book 
(also printed in the Appendix), being an inquisition of the lands and rents

survey by I^nlph do Baudake. Dean of St. Paul's, in 1279. Wc k-ow then 
of the existence of eight books subsequent to the Exchequer Domesday, 
compiled at difierent intervals during two centuries, identical in character, 
and bearing the same denomination, those of them which have been brought 
to light being records of inquisitions of the respective rights and duties of 
tlie lord of the soil^ and of tlie tenant within the limits either of cities or 
manors. 

The Exchequer Domesday ds a return of ihe value and condition of 
the Manors at two distinct periods — at the time ^vhen the r-:tu;-n was 
made, and in the days of Edward the Confessor. It is probable that records 
were in existence which enabled the jurors of each countv, at the dis- 
tance of twenty-three years from the death of Edward, to describe so 
mmutely the former and present condition of each manor, its value, the 
power of the tenants to part with their lands with or without the consent of 
tlie lord, the names of the tenants, the number of acres held by ihcm, and 
the services due fromi them. The return of the royal revenue prior to the 
Conquest, and of the dues from courts of justice, shared by the Crown, the 
Comes or Earl, and the Prelates, and collected by tlie Vicecomes or .•>heriff 
in each county, implies the use of written documents. Take, for instance, 
the rights which the Confessor had in the burgh of Wallingford (Domesdav, 
p. 56), the varied nature of which will prove, that without a rental, and 
without minutes of the leoal proceedings within the burch. the Kino-'s 
praepositus would neither have been able to collect the gavel, amounting to 
eleven pounds, from two hundred and seventy-six holdings, denominated 
Jiciga', nor have satisfied the king's officers, that he duly certified the 
foriyfactuTce or forfeitures which belonged to the Crown. 

All the Domesday books have one common feature, that of being rentals of 
manors and records of manorial rights; but in the Royal Domesday the rental 
is given only in the form of a brief abstract : in the Capitular Doniesdays. the 
enumeration of the tenants and of their lands is set forth in the fullest extent. 
The former has the appearance of an abridgment of a Manorial Court roll, the 
latter are the Court-rolls at lengtli. The most ancient Court-rolls now extant 
are identical in ciiaracter with that series of Records bcloncinf^ to St. Paul's. 



INTRODUCTION. XI 

ihe iTiOSt ar;cier,t of uhich arc called Domepdays. The tille of tlie Court-rull 
of Castle Combe, Will?, is '• Iledditualc ci;m Ciislumario de Castlecombe 

facr.im ad fe.-tum Sancli Michaelis anno liegni Regis Edw per sacra- 

rccntum ^^'alteri North," &c. This document is of as early a date as 1340. 
The annual rent of the manor was 15/. 12.v, 8d. and the numlier of the 
tenants exceeded fifty. Identity of character would seem to indicate a 
common use. At Castle Combe, the court rolls were the records of 
proceedings ou the davs therein termed huv-days — on those days in wliich 
not only rents were received, but legal rights and duties ascertained. And 
if, as is probable, the Exchequer Domesday, being the rental of all the 
manors of the kingdom in an abridged foru). ^Yas compiled from inquisitions 
htld on the Dcaies-days of the diSerent ^Manors, or on tlie Law-days of 
the Hundreds, called Lagehundred (at p. 86), such a fact wo\ild illus- 
trate the meaning of the term. Domesday, when applied alike to the Liber 
Censualis of the Crown and to the ancient Court-roll of a Capitular Manor, 
as being records framed upon the oaths of jurors in a Domes- day or Law- 
day inquisition. 

The Domesdav books are then records, which illustrate the condition 
of En'^iand as occu})ied in the pursuits of peace rather than of war, for 
Manors are civil possessions and not military commands; and, though the 
owner of the ALinor was bound to act in the m.ilitary defence of the country, 
the tenantrv. v.ho dwelt on the estate, had no such duties to perform. They 
were the labcurers. not the soldiers of the Lord. Manors, whether royal, 
baronial, or episcopal and ecclesiastical, were to their owners sources of 
vealth, derived from two distinct sources — the exercise of a legal jurisdic- 
tion and the rent or cultivation of land. The Ecclesiastical Manors differed 
in no respect from those which were in lay hands. They were the sources 
of income, not the field of s]iiritual labour. Tliey contributed to the sup- 
port of the Bishop or of the Chapter, and of the religious household of the | T 
Cathedral, bv tirofits and revenues no way different from those derived by 
the Sovereign and the Lords from other ^Lanor?. It is remarkable, that 
neither the Exchequer Domesday, nor the Domesdays of St. Paul's contain 
anv evidence, tliat the Eccle-iastical manors had any superior religious 
privilr-ges, or were the centres from which religious knowledge was diffused 
to the neighbourhood. The Manors of the religious houses were in reality 
secular possessions ; and their history, as shewn in the Domesdays of St. 



XU IXTEODUCTIOX. 

PauVs, is valuable as illustrating the social, rather than the religious, con- 
ditio:: of the time. 

Tr.e docurijents of the present volume exhibit to us in minute detail 
T^e various relations in %vhich o\vners and occupiers of lands in England 
stood :o each other in the nhddlc of the 12th century, at the distance 
of no; more tlian one hundred years from the Concjuest : the fragment 
of the Domesday of Ralph de Diceto in 1181 (seepages 109-11 7), and the 
leases of the manors (see pages 122-139) connecting the later documents 
vrith those of the earlier period, and the v.hole of them taken together 
proving most clearly, that from the middle of the 12th century to the be- 
ginnirg of the l4th no change took ]jlace in the general occupation of the 
country. Their chief value, however, will be found to consist in the retro- 
spective vievr vrhich they enable us to take of antecedent periods, and to 
urite the state of society in the Anglo-Xorman with that in the Anglo- 
Saxon times, the contracted character of the Exchequer Domesdav being 
in the St. Paul's Domesday written in extenso. and the relations of landlord 
and tenant, briefly recorded in the older document, being in the later more 
fully explained. 

The Manors of St. Pauls, in common v. iih the other ^Manors of the 
kingdom, consisted of two distinct portions : the lands of the Demesne, and 
the lajnn; of the_Teiiants. As respects the Capitular Manors in the counties 
of Middlesex. Hertford, and Surrev, the proportion which the Demesne 
bore to the Tenants" lands is distinctly stated in the Exchequer Domesdav: 
but in the enumeration of the Capitular manors in the county of Essex, the 
only intimation of this division is in the distinction between the caruca; or 
plough-teams in the demesne, and those which belonged to the Tenants. 
The Domesdays of St. Paul's supply the defect, and enable us to ascertain, 
with respect to the whole of the property, the number of hides in each 
Manor of both descriptions, whether Tenants' land or Demesne. 

Tne whole number of hides of land to which the Chapter was assessed to 
hidag^e in 1222 was 133|. In fourteen out of the eighteen Manors, the 
numc-er cf rateable hides had remained the same from the time of the 
Conquest, but at Tidwoldintun the variation consisted in reduction from 
eight hides to three, at Chingford and at Ardley from six to five, at 
Drayton from ten to nine, whilst at >sastock there was an increase from 
seven to eicht. 



IXTRODUCTIOX. xiii 

These variations are iritcrestiRg. not only as indicating changes in the 
condition of the Manors as respects the extent of cultivation, but as imply- 
ing a power on the part of the Tenants in capite of procuring from the 
Crown a relaxation of the burden of hidage. Whether any general revisal 
of the Survey of the Conqueror took place in later reigns is uncertain ; but 
T.-hen we discover in the records of St. Paul's a full Inquisition of all the 
Manors (see pages 140-146). in which the number of hides is recorded at 
v.hich each Manor " defendebat se" in the time of Henry the First and 
William the Dean, several of the Manors being rated otherwise than they 
had been in the Exchequer Domesday, it is reasonable to conclude, tliat 
these changes were not made without the consent and approval of the 
Crown; and when we further learn, that William the Dean adiusted the 
pa}~ment of the hidage between the Demesne and the Tenants' lands in the 
manor of Barling (see page 143), there is ground for conjecture that, as 
the variations above alluded to were made in his time, thev mifrht also be 
made bj- his endeavours and under his superintendence. That the Crown 
at later periods than that of William in some cases diligentlv investi- 
gated its ancient rights, is evident from the Liber Wintoniensis of Henry I., 
which opens with the following preface : '■ Henricus Kex volens scire quid 
Rex Edwardus habuit omnibus roodis Wintonicp in suo dominico,Burtrensium 
suornm sacramento hoc comprobari jussit." Such attention, however, to the 
rights of the Crown is not inconsistent with a due regard to the relief of the 
subject, either as of favour or of right. In the case of the Manor of Tid- 
•woldintun (Heybridge) the reduction of the number of rateable hides, first 
from 8 to 7^ and then from 7^ to 3, is worthy of remark, the latter reduc- 
tion having taken place between 1181 and 1222. The Manor lies at the 
extreme end of the Blackwater estuary, on the coast of Essex. In the time 
of Stephen, ieiupore guerr<e, (see page 142,) some inroad of the sea and 
destruction of woods had taken place, to the injury of the produce of the 
manor, and some similar misfortune at a later period might have griveu 
occasion to a reduction of the hidage from seven and a half hides to three. 

The Hide of land in the Manors of St. Paul's contained 120 acres, or four 
virgates of thirty acres : bin. besides the ordinary Hide, we find mention at 
Tillingham, Sutton, and Drayton of land of a different denomination, and 
occasionally liable to a different burden of taxation, the " Hida de solanda." 
At Drayton this hide did not pay '-geld" with the other hides, "nisi 



XIV IKTliODUCTIOX. 

quum comrauniter fiant exactiones per hidas" (p. 99). AVhetlier the 
solanda nl Sutton and those at Tiliingham had the hkc exen^ption is doubtful. 
A solo./. da consisted of two liidcs (pp. 68 and 93). but piobably in this 
case the liide was not of the oi'dinary dimension. Tiie word solanda, or 
a? it is written at p. 142 scokinda, is so evidently a latinized form of 
the Ar.clo-Saxon sulnuo^. or plough-land, and approaches so near to the 
Kentish ioJ'nms:. that we need scarcely hesitate to consider them identical, 
and since we learn from the Domesday Survey of the possessions of St. 
Martin's at Dover (vol. i. f. 2) that 450 acres make two solins and a half, 
the solin being therefore 180 acres, vre gather from hence that the solanda 
probably did not contain two full hides of liO acres, but two smaller hides 
uf 90 acres each, or ISO acres, being the Kentish soli/uix or Anglo-Saxon 
s}(Iuytir. 

In the Manors of St. Paul's the actual extent of thie land much exceeded 
the quantity at which it was rated ; and if throughout the whole kingdom 
the same proportion v^'as observed, it would follow generally, that land was 
rated to hideage at about two-thirds of its real extent. The 133k hides 
of St. Paul's (reckoning the hide at 1'20 acres) would have contained only 
16,020 acres ; hut an enumeration of the whole of tlie lands shews an actual 
acreage of nearly 24,000 acres. Of these 24,000 acres, three-eighths were 
in demesne and five-eighths belonged to the tenants, being for the most 
part lands of inheritance, subject to the rents and services of which we shall 
have to take notice. 

Broad however as is the distinction in the description of these Manors 
between the land of the Demesne and the land of the Tenants, it appears 
from the number of the acres which were held by the tenants '' de 
dominico." and from the services performed by them, that the lords 
of Manors had power, if not to alienate the Demesne in perpetuity to 
tenants, at least to grant to them a right of occupation, upon con- 
ditions of service not different from those attached to lands which did not 
form part of the demesne. It would be out of place to enter upon an 
inquiry v.hether, in the original formation of Manors, one part of the 
Manor was not demesne, and another part held by the people : but when at 
later periods land was granted to tenants, the land so granted was said to 
be as-^isid. Thr.s we read at p. 140, in the manor of Ardley : " De sex 
prsedictis hvdis dute fucrunt in dominio ct ouatuor ((s&i.-'a' et adhuc sunt ;"

per Oconem;"" and at p. 94, " I;ti tencnt de terra as?isa."' 

It has been stcted that the Exchequer Dc-es-dav supplies ns with httle 
icfonnation as to the rehitive extent of the Tenants' lands, and of tlie De- 
ruesue, in the county of Essex ; the cnun;erat;on of the Caruca;, or plough- 
teams, in the Denx'sne, and of the Carucs? of the Homines, or Tenants, 
EiTording no certain clue to the acreage of the two portions of the manor. 
Concerning, however, the nature of the Carucas the records of St. Paul's 
afford some raluahle inforn:!ation. In the survey of the Manor of Adul- 
vesnasa, in the Exchequer Doniesdav, vol. ii. we have this description of 
the Carucae of the demesne and of the tenar.ts. '• \'i. caruca? in dcniinio. 
Tunc inter horuines Ix. carucs'. niodo xxs." In the lease of that manor, 
granted in the time of Ilalph de Diceto. son:;e 120 years later, see p. 125, 
we have renewed mention of these sis Caruca? in the demesne, with the 
addition of the number of oxen attached to them, and as being a part of the 
stock of this Manor leased to the lessee : '•' Restauramentum tale est : sex 
carruc^, de quinque unaqua?que x. houm. sexta autem viii. bourn. 

The St. Paul's Domesday of 1222 difers from the Exchequer Domesday, 
in making no distinct mention of the Carucje possessed by the tenants ; but 
in each Manor the number and strength of the teams, which, when added 
to the " censuetudines," or customarv labour perfcrn-ied by the tenants, 
were sufficient for the cultivation of the demesne, are particularly stated. 
The general form of the Inquisition, as respects the plough teams, is, " Di- 
cunt cuod potest fieri V\'ainagium cum toridem carucis totidem capitum 
cum consuetudinibus villatas." But as to the strength and composition of 
these teams there is much variety: — 

" Potest fieri wainagium mancrii cum cuobus carucis viii. capitum,," p. 8. 
'• Quinque carucse. quarum tres habent iiij. bovcs ct iiij. equos et duae 
singulse vi. equos,'' p. 13. 

*' Quatuor carucse x. capitum," p. 28. 

" Tres carucaex capitum, scilicet in qualibet viij boves et ij. equi," p. 48. 
" Duae carucfe bonK cum XX. capitibus scilicet cum X. equis etx bobus,"p.53. 
" DuEB carucffi xx. capitum, scilicet cum xii. bobus et viij. equis," p. 59. 
'• Duee carucae cum xvi. capitibus, scilicet medietas equoruru et m.edietas 
bourn,'' p. 65. 



XVI IXTIIODUCTIOX, 

" Potest •naluagiuni fieri cum xii. bovibus ct quatuor Ftottis," p. 93. 

Hence it appears that of v.-hEtcver kind of animals the Carucs? or teams 
vrere formed, there were in each team not less than six, eight, or ten head of 
cattle, either horses alone, cr beasts alone, or horses and beasts intermi^ed. 

Ir must "be obvious to every student of the Excheijuer Domesday, that the 
abstracts of inquisitions, ubich constitute the body of that work, were made 
bv different persons, and that the information derived from it. as respects 
the condition of Manors throujrhout the kingdom, is not of an uniform cha- 
racter. The Domesdav of Essex is distinguished by the frequent envimera- 
tiou of the live stock of the manors, and the comparison of the number of 
animals of each description existing at the two periods — the lime of the Sur- 
vev and tlie tin":e of the Coi^fessor. Thus in the survey of the manor- of 
Brachestedam, in the hundred cf Witham (vol. il. p. 49), it is recorded, that 
in the time of the Confessor there were in that manor '• tv,-o horses (run- 
cini), fourteen beasts (animalia ), forty pigs, and eighty sheep ; but at the 
time of the Survey there were found one horse, six beasts, forty-six pigs, 
one hundred and ten sheep, and four hives of bees." The Manors belonging 
to the canons of St. Pauhs in the county of Essex are enumerated at pp. 
12 and 13 of the same volume, and a similar account of the live stock is 
also iriven ; e. g., at Belchamp there were nine beasts, two horses, fortv 
pigs, an hundred sheep, and five goats. At Wicham two horses, four 
beasts, twentv-three pigs, fifty sheep, twenty-four goats, and two hives of 
bees. The live stock upon these manors of St. Paul's is in some cases 
said to have been always (that is, in the time of the Confessor and also at 
the time of the Survev) the same : a circumstance which is explained b}'' 
the S'opposition. that the live stock thus enumerated was that which formed 
the vrqAerucntum of the demesne, distinct mention of which is made in the 
leases of manors contained in this volume (pp. 122 — 139), as received by 
the firmarius at the commencement of his lease, and rendered either in 
kind or value at its termination. It appears from those leases, which were 
granted nearly a century after the Conquest, that this live stock had in the 
mean time been varied, and we cannot, as in the case of the Caruca? of 
Adulvesnasa, identifv the stock as being the same in extent at the earlier 
and the later period ; we can however in one instance identifv its 
character, by the beasts, the horses, the pigs, and the goats, which at 
both periods are described, p. 121. as belonging to the manor of W'icham. 



INTKODUCTJO.V. xvii 

In the Excheqiier Dome>diiy, wiictiicr a manor belonged to tl.e Lii;g or 
a prelate, or to av.y other body or person, its description is of the same 
character and relates to the same particulars, the general form being as 
follows : — 

" Herfordsciie (f. 136, a.) 
"Terra Sancti Pauli Lundnn. In Danais Hniidred. 

" Canonici Lundonienses lenent Canesworde. Pro x. hidis se defendit. 
Terra est x. carucarum. In dominio v hidae, et ibi sunt ii. canic;e et adhuc

Qvahdo 'j'eceperiint c. sulidi, et iantumdem teinjiore I^cijis JLdicardi. 
Hoc manerium tenuit Leuuinus Cilt de rege Edwardo." 

The clause in this return, to which we would now direct the atteniion of 
the reader, is that which is printed in Italics, and which records the \alue of 
the manor at three periods, the time of the Survey, the time when the 
Chapter became possessed of it, and the time of Edward the Confessor. 
This mode of describing the value of manors is universal throughout the 
Domesday, nor is it limited to manors ; tenements which consisted of but a 
few acres being similarly valued, e.g. twenty acres in one place being valued 
at fortv pence, and thirtv-five acres in another at fortv-six pence. Such 
phrases as '-valet" and " valuit " would seem to indicate the value of the 
whole estate, and such is the interpretation of the term, which has been 
adopted bv the learned Dr. Nash in his Commentarv upon the Domesday 
of Vv'orcestershire, and probably bv other writers. A comparison however 
of the inquisitions of manors in the Exchequer Domesdav, both with each 
other and with the inquisiiions of the St. Paul's Domesdays, will render it 
probable that the terms "valet" and " valuit" do not represent the value of 
the whole estate, but only the annual profit derived from money rents. 

For the elucidation of this subject we shall first exhibit in parallel 
columns inquisitions of Hoval and of Ecclesiastical Manors ; from which 
it will be evident that, whatever was the object in view in estimating and 
recording these values, the manors of the Crown and of its subjects were 
estimated and recorded in the same manner; and also, that whatever it might 
be, upon which a value was put, whether land or rent, in the Royal manor,

the same thing was valued in all other manors ; and since in verv manv 
cases it is the annual value, at -which the estate was let to farm, or the annual 
rent received, which is recorded in the inquisition, we have ground for con- 
jecture, that it was the annual value which was sought to be ascertained in 
the inquisition, and which is accordinglv expressed by the term " valet'' or 
"valuit;" the truth of the conjecture being confirmed by its S('Iving nearly 
all the difficulties, Mhich follow from the supposition that "valet"' means the 
value of the fee simple of the estate, and also by its reconciling the dinVren^ 
descriptions of value with each other : —

It will be observed that in two of these manors, Optune and Menes. 
their value, put "ad firmam,." exceeded the other certified value. It is 
then obvious, that all the values of these manors are annual values : and 
there being no reason to imagine, that in these manors the term '• valet " 



INTIiODUCTJOX. MX 

is employed in a peculiar sense, we conclude that gciierallv. and in other 
cases where the value of the esiaie put to farm is not given, tlie word 
" valet "' also raeans annual value. 

It is further to be observed, that in the Exchequer Domesdaj' the terras 
••' reddit" and "redditus" frequently sup'/ly ihe place of '• valet."" In tlie 
Domesday of Wiltshire the '• Terra Regis '" contained twenty-two manors. 
Six of them may be distinguished from the rest as ancient Royal manors, 
which had never paid, nor been estimated for, hidage, but which " reddi- 
dermit firmam unius noctis cum omr.lhus consuetudinibus," the value 
of this redditus being at Chepehan 110/. and at Theodulveside 100/. 
The value of fourteen other manors, some of which had belonged to 
Haruld; is estimated in most of them as '• redditus," but in others by the 
term '• valet." So also in the roval manors in the county of Oxford (nine 
in number), two, Langford and Scoptone, were held to farm. The value 
(valet j of the former manor being eighteen and of the latter nine pounds ; 
but the remaining seven manors have their values described as "redditus," 
and in three cases as " redditus ]:>er annum." These are a few out of many 
instarices, which might be adduced to confirm the suggestion, that "valet' 
throughout the Exchequer Domesday means only the annual value of 
money-rent, or the sum which the estate was worth when let to farm. 

At page l40 of this volume, the reader will find an inquisition of all the 
Manors of St. Paul's in the year IlSl : the resemblance of this inquisition 
to that of the Exchequer Domesday in respect of the number of hides at 
wliich the manors were assessed, or which were in the demesne, will be per- 
ceived by comparing the inquisition of the manor,of Keuswrtha (Canesworde), 
with that already presented to tlie reader. " INIanerium de Keneswrtha de- 
fendebat se tempore Regis Heurici et Willielmi decani pro x. hidis versus 
regem, et reddebat vicecomiti xx. s., et adhuc ita est. Canonicis vero reddit 
xiij. lib. De x. hidis v. fuerunt in dominio et adhuc sunt, in quibus v. hidis

acr* de terra arabili et in bosco cc. acra?. Est ibi pastura ccc. ovibus. 
Suiitina dpuarlorujii x. lib. et vii. solid, et ob." As in the case of the 
older inquisition of this manor of Kensworth we drew attention to the term 
" valet," and pointed out some of the reasons for interpreting the term as 
meaniuD" onlv annual value, so, with reference to the term " Summa denan-

Drum " in this later inquisition, we %^-ould observe that, as it occupies the 
place of the - \alet."" its position alone would lead us to conclude, that the 
terms are eyprc-ssire of the same value — that which at orje period was ex- 
pressed hv •■valet'" being afterwards expressed by the " Summa denario- 
runi." Xov\- there cannot be anv doubt, that the nionev-values recorded in 
the Inquisition of 1181 under the head "Summa denariorum " are the 
values of annual rents ; for. on summing up the rents paid hv all the 
tenants of the manors as set forth in the Inquisition of 1222, the sums 
received in each nianor at both periods so nearly correspond, as to prove the 
identity of the payments as annual rents. Assuming, then, that in all the 
surveys of manors, those of the time of the Confessor and of the Conqueror, 
of Ralph de Diceto in I 181. and of Robert dc Watford in 122-'. it is the 
annual value that is recorded under the terms " valet '" and " Summa dena- 
riorum." t];e compar!>on of these values as exhibited in the subjoined table

mav not be uninteresting, the vri.ole interval of time from the first valuation 
T. R. E. to that in 12i'i' occupying a period of about 160 years. In order 
to account for the variation of value of each manor at the different periods, 
much more information is required, than we possess. It is, however, to be 
borne in mind, that the rents represented by the respective sums are not 
variable annual rents of tenants at -R-ill, but the fixed rent payable by 
tenants of estates descending in the family by hereditary succession. Upon 
the values at the two earlier periods it is to be remarked, that the contrast 
between them and those of the two later periods, as not exhibiting any frac- 
tional pavments, clearly intimar-es estimated or average values rather than 
actual receipts. And as respects the increase and diminution of rent at any 
of the periods, it is to be observed, that increase would take place by the 
conversion of demesne lands into tenants' lands ; and that the resumption 
of tenants' lands by failure of heirs and by forfeiture, by increasing the land 
in demesne, would cause a ciminction of rent. The increase of the 
" Summa denariorum '" in 1222 above that of 1 181 would indicate, either 
that a larger part of the demest^e had been assisrd in the meantime, or that 
lands, which had escheated, hid been regranted on higher terms. The 
whole value of all the manors was also greater in the time of the Conqueror 
than of the Confessor ; but the Increase took place chiefly in the county of 
Essex, the manors in the other counties having fallen in value. It would 
seem, that the good manasremeii: of a manor depended much upon the allot- 
ment of lands in demesne, in the exercise of that right, which the lord of 
the manor is described as possessing at Kensworth (p. 160). " jionere ad 
operationem quantum voluerit " of the five hides in demesne, and to which 
also reference appears to !►€ made by tlie jurors at Beauchamp (p. 28), 
Hevbridge (p. 53). Runwell (p. 170), and Nastock (p. ] 75), in their 
statements, that the lands of the demesne, the essarts or newly-cleared 
lands, and other tenements had been let (tradit«) with due regard to the 
interest of the Chapter. 

Tenants of four ranks or orders occupied the Manors of St. Paul's at the 
time of the Exchequer Survey — Viilani. Bordarii. Cotarii, Servi, and they 
were more than five hundred ii number. In the Domesday of 1222 only 
one of these distinctive names is preserved — that of the Cotarii ; but the 
other three classes appear to l-e represented by the Tenentes, the Operarii, 
and the Nativi, the whole number of tenements exceeding thirteen hundred, 
and indicating a proportionate increase in the population. 



XXU IXTr;OL)L'CT]ON. 

The fr3giv,ei-jt of the Inquiiition of Ralph de Dicdo in JISl (see page 
1 14). ulTords the mecriS of comparing the number of tenants in the manor of 
Bi-'lchampin that year, with the numbers at the earlier time of the Domesday 
Survey, and at the later period of 122:2. Twenty-four Villani. ten Bordarii, 
and five Servi occipied th.at manor in lOtSG. in all thirty-nine. A hundred 
years later there v.-ere eighteen Libere tenentes, holding six hundred and 
sixty-seven acres, -with thirty-five tenants of the demesne holding one hundred 
and fiftv-eight acres ; these two classes being fifty-three in number. In the 
next fifty years the Libere tenentes had increased from eighteen to thirty- 
four, or nearly double : but the quantity of land held by them bad increased 
from six hundred and sixtv-seven acre? to onlv seven hundred and fortv- 
four. The tenants of the demesne lands had increased from thirtv-five 
to forty-four, and the acre'.ge of the lands from one hundred and fiftv- 
eight to one hundred and eighty acres. The two classes together were 
in 10S6 thirty-four; in 1J81 fifty-three, in T_'22 seventy-eight. 

It was necessary, in order to the name of any person being admitted on 
the Court Roll, that he should be the rightful occupier of land or mes- 
suage ; and every one so admitted may be considered the head of a house- 
hold. So manv tenements were however held by widows and single women, 
and the same person so frequently held two or three kinds of tenancies 
in the same manor, that the number of the households necessarily falls 
short of the number of the tenements. The causes of the increase in the 
.number of tenancies mav be found in the lettiug to tenants portions of the 
derae-ne and of the waste, or woodland, newly brought into cultivation, and 
denominated " essarts ;" and it is probable, that from the lands so tenanted 
the lord of the manor derived an increased annual rent, and additional 
labour for the demesne. Another source of increase in the number of 
tenancies was the subdivision of the land according to the law of gavelkind, 
which, as we learn from Glanville (vii. 2). was applicable to all lands 
not held by knights or by miliiary tenure ; and which divided the inherit- 
ance of the Socmen equally among all the sons. (See also Bracton, ii. 34.) 
But from such divisions of the land the lord derived no increased annual 
profit. A virgate, or a hide of land, when so divided, does not appear to 
have been chargeable v,-ith ar.\ increased rent, or anv increased tenant-labour, 
whilst the number of persons liable to the rent, and to the performance of 
labour, might increase the diiSculty on the part of the lord in exacting his 
dues, without his having any proportionate advantage. 



IXTEODUCTIOX. xxiil 

The mr^nor of Sutton, however, presents a remarkalile contrast to the 
other manors of St. Paul with respect to increase in the numLcr of 
tenancies at the periods above memioned. In the ExcheCjUer Domes- 
d-riv it is recorded that the tenants of this manor consisted of eifrht ^'i|]ani. 
holding each one virgate. seven ^'illar.i holding each half a virgatc. seven 
Bordarii ^vith five acres each, sixteen Cotarii, and two Servi — altogether 
forty persor.s. The number of tenancies in li22:2 appearing but little to 
exceed the ancient num-ber of forty, has led to a more accurate comparison of 
the two Surveys, which has been attended by some curious results ; such as 
these, first that the number of tenants was as nearly as possible forty at both 
periods : that at the earlier period e]e^en and a half virgates, and at the 
later period twelve virgates, were held first by fifteen and then by eighteen 
tenants; that the seven Bordarii with their five acres each are represented 
by seven Operarii, witli the like number of acres ; and that the number of 
tenants described as holders " de terra assisa " in 1222, and chiefly in small 
quantities, such as the Cotarii generally held, very nearly corresponds to 
the sixteen Cotarii of the Exchequer Domesday. Such coincidences confirm 
most strongly the idea that the ancient, as well as the later Domesdays, were 
compiled from sources of a similar character, and that the ancient Domes- 
days are, as has been suggested, abbreviated Court Rolls of Manors. The 
liecords of St. Paul's throw no light upon the meaning of the title Bor- 
darius ; but, since the use of the word had ceased at the beginning of the 
thirteenth century, -we may conclude, that if any particular duties, other than 
those performed by the Operarii, had before belonged to them, they had at 
that time ceased. 

It is to be remarked, that though there were "Servi" on every manor 
in the earner times, no distinct mention is made of this class on any of the 
manors in 1222, though probably the persons described at p. 80 as " nativi 
a principio " in the manor of Navestock belonged to it. Personal slavery, 
by which is meant the right to sell and transfer the slave to any new owner, 
does not appear to have been an Anglo-Saxon institution : it is doubtful, 
whether a Lord possessed a greater property in the Servus, than is implied in 
the obligation on the part of the Serrus to dwell upon the estate, and not 
to depart from it without the licenc-:- of his Lord. The ordinary prandial 
services due from the Tenentes or Villani were not required to be per- 
formed in person : and whether in the manor or out of it the Villanus was

not in legal lavjguage " sub potestate domini." Not so the Nativu? ; wherever 
he was dwelling, he was his Lord's property, and must return to his Manor^ or 
be pursued as a fugitive slave (Bracton,!. i. c. G, 10). As respt-cts pra-dial 
service; the Nativi of Nastok were not bound to greater personal labour or 
to services dinerent from those performed bv the Operarii on other manors. 
yet their tenure was "bondage" ('" Johannes Peter nativus tenei in bondagio 
unum mesuagium.'" &c. p. 81), the distinctive mark of that condition being 
tlje payment of Havedsot or Chevagium (head n:oney) for licence to po 
away either to trade or serve on hire. This payment was at Nastock a 
penny, married couples paying double. A verv interesting account of 
the late continuance of tenure in bondage is to Tie found in the History 
of the Manor of Castle Co'mbe,* to which reference has been already 
made. 

As the manor of Nastock is distinguished bv its '• Kativi." so is also tlie 
manor of Adulvesnasa by two classes of tenants, unknown on the other 
capitular manors, the " Akermanni" and " Hidarii."' 

The Akermanni are described at p. 52 as belonging to Walton, Thorp, 
and Kirkeby with Horlock, being in 1222 three divisions of the great manor 
of Adu]\esnasa. and the survev of the whole manor being taken upon the 
oaths of three juries, at Tliorp, at Kirkeby. and at Walton. Jt is also to he 
observed that at Thorp and at Walton, which are distant five miles from 
each other, there were separate demesne? ; and. as appears from the lea«e 
to Richard the Archdeacon (see pp. 130, 131 ). a courthouse and Uirus 
at Walton, and at Thorp a homestead, with a barn, a stackyard, and a house 
used partly as a barn. These Akermanni were six in nuuiber. holding each 
of them five acres. Their tenure of the land was luicenain : for it is dis- 
tinctly said that the Lord could take them into his own hand whenever he 
pleased — " dominus potest capere in manu sua cum vmIx ;" and yet it 
is doubtful, whether by such an act the Lord could have entirely annihi- 
lated the rights of the Akerman's heir; some limitation to vi»e consoGnence 
of this seizure being apparently implied in the qualifying expression — '-sine 
injuriis hered:taria> successionis.' It iv possible, that these s;x Akemuinnl 
were the representatives of those Servi. of whom it 1? said in the Lxche- 
qucr Domesdav. that there had alwavs been six of that clas? at Adulvesnasa,

and it is reraarkablo. that four of tliera, Rand' the weaver, Adman the s-on 
of Here\ icus, Alicia the widow of Jordan, and the brothers Walter and 
Edmund, held other lands in other capacities (see pages 30, 44, 49, 51), 
and that the occupations of the remaining two. Sagar the shipman, and 
Johannes tlie merchant, are quite compatible with the condition of the 
Nativi as already described, who holding '•' in bondagio " could, under certain 
penalties or ]iaymcnts, remove from the manor, and carry on trade, or serve 
on hire elsewhere. 

The Inquisition of the Manor of Adulvesnasa (see pp. 38-52) differs 
from those of the oiher manors of St. Paul's, in having each hide sepa- 
rately described, as held by its tenants in different proportions, the number 
of hides thus described being nineteen and a-half. and the tenants being 
denominated Hidarii. The hide was not divided amongst its tenants 
equally, nor was the number of tenants on each hide the same ; the 
first hide (see page 41) was divided among four tenants, the second 
among nine, the third among ten, and the fourth among eight ; the remaining 
hides exhibiting the like variety, both as to the number of tenants, and the 
quantity of the land held by each, within the hide. Portions of separate 
hides were in several instances held by the same person. So peculiar a 
division of the land, and so distinct an appellation, might appear to indicate 
some peculiar privilege. There is however no ground for such a supposi- 
tion ; for if we compare the services due from the Hidarii, as detailed in 
pages 42 and 47, with those of the Libere tenentes on other manors, it will 
be evident, that the Hidarii of Adulvesnasa belonged to the ordinary class of 
Villani, their distinction being probably only this, that they were jointly, as 
well as severally, bound to perform the services due from the hide, of which 
they held part. 

We have before observed, that in the Exchequer Domesday the tenants 
of the Manors of St. Paul's are enumerated as belonging to four classes: — 
Villani, Bordarii, Cotarii, and Servi. In the Capitular Survey of these 
manors in 1222, we find no such distinct classification, nor is there any 
uniform system in the description of the tenants or their tenancies. The 
following list exhibits nearly all tlie varieties of description. 

1. Libere tenentes. 2. Tenenies antiquum tenementum. 3, Tenentes 
de purpresturis. 4. Tenentes sexacras. 5. Tenentes dimidias virgatas.

and to be an Operarlu?. might bean appellation, as superior to that of Bor- 
fiariu-. as that of Nativus manifestly is to that of Servus or Slave. 

Ui dcr the Manorial svstem all the tenants performed pra?dial services ; 
b'.it Ire hicrher was the rank of the tenant, the fewer services were due. 

It would seem, that the lord of a mancr had originallv the ricrht to 
the assistance of all his tenants in cultivating the Demesne, and gathering 
in the produce at the Precariae or Boon days, being the three seasons. — of 
harvest, and of the an.tun.nal and lenten ploughing and sowing. The 
Can'-y- of St. Paul's, who, as is ?hiev.n in the Exchequer Domesday, held 
the ?*Ianor of Barnes, as part of the Archiepiscopal Manor of ]\Iortlake. 
were bound either bv themselves or their tlrmarius to plcigh four acres of 
the Archbishop's land and to find men to attend one Precaria (see page 
10-3V whilst their own Tenants on that ]\Tanor performed for them similar 
services. In differejit manors of St. Paul's the services due on these 
days were in some degree varied. At Kensworth the service of rtoping 
and plousrhing was limited to two davs, at each of the three seasons; and if 
the second dav"s service was demanded, the labourer's food was furnished by 
th.e lord. At Sandon and at Beauchamp the lord's right was limited to one 
dav. and he found food. At V\'ickam, the service appears to have been 
lim.ited to digging the ground for the crop of fiax. gathering it. and steep- 
insr it. and carrying it home : and also to the furnishing one man from each 
house for three holidays to collect nuts. At Kirkeby some other services, 



1 XT J :< )Di:CTJ UX. .\.\ \l.l 

includinp- trat of thrashing ^eed corn, and supi)lyi:ig carriage, were re- 
quired. At Hevbridge llie '• Libere tenentes " assisted in carrying tlie corn 
to St. Paul's. It will be seen, that the extent of the ploughing, or reaping, 
or of c-jrtage. due at tlic Boon dnvs. ii defined in tlic SurNey of \---'2, with 
some slight difference; on dill'iic;:! manors ; but, since it is evident th.at 
the highest classes of tenants did not pc rform prandial services at any other 
periods of the year than those of the Precaria? or P/Oon days, and that not 
even the "Libere tenentes '" were exempt from them, we conclude that all 
the tenants who performed onlv these services v.ere of the first class, though 
not distinctlv so designated, and that thev are the representatives of that 
order of tenants who were at the Conquest called " Villani." 

With respect to the te:;ants of the manors wijo were inferior to the 
" Libere tenentes." viz. tiie Operarli and Cotarii, the Pnquisitions of St. 
Paul's supply the fullest proof, that the distinctive character of their services 
consisted in the obligation to }'erfonn prandial labour upon the demesne lands, 
not onlv at the Boon davs. but during every week of the year, the holiday 
weeks at Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost excepted. The name by which 
this class of tenants was in some cases distinguished from the " Libere 
tenentes," was that of " Custumarii." The customs of the different manors 
were not uniform as respects these tenants ; but generally iheir weekly labour 
varied according to the pcidcd of the vear. being the least from ?Jichaelmas 
to Pentecost, after that increasing from Pentecost to the feast of St. I'eter 
ad Vincula (Aug. 1), and being greatest from that time till Michaelmas. 
At Sandon, during these periods, the Ojieravii upon each hali-virgate supplied 
labour for two, four, and five davs. .-\t Kadendon the Colani laboured 
thrice a week from Michaelmas to August, and from that period avery 
day but Saturday : but at Ardley their labour was limited to Monday, and 
to the services of carrying, and driving swine to Londuii. V\ c observe, in 
conclusion, that although we have failed, either to discover the exact differ- 
ence between the Cotarii and other 0))erarii. or to explain the meaning of 
the title Bordarius. it has yet been shown, that the Operarii and Cotarii were 
suljject to demands of labour and oilier payments, on the part of the lord, 
far greater than those due frona the tenants of the higher classes ; and there 
being no evidence of their being compelled to perform those services in 
person, or of iheir being forbidden to live away from the nianor, it follows, 
that they occupied the naiddle rank between the " Libere tetienle?," who^e

services were occasional, and those of the Servi or Nativi. who could never 
leave the so:", vsithout the license of the lord. 

Prjedial service, or, as it might be termed, '•agricultural labour,'" was 
the ler.ure. ii::ctr which lands were generally held of the lords of manors at 
the begir.riir.r of the thirteenth century: if land were licld bv pavment of 
money al-.ne. there is very frequently direct evidence of the payment being 
a corrspositicn in lieu of service. It becomes an interesting subject of 
inquiry, in what age this kind of agricultural society had its origin, whether 
ir was of the Anglo-Norman or the Anglo-Saxon period. Upon this point, 
scanty as is tne information we obtain from the Exchequer Domesdav. com- 
pared with the voluminous character of that record, the instances which tliere 
occur of pr?ec;al tenures are sufficientlv numerous, even though unsup- 
ported by o:her evidence, to justify the conclusion, that they existed, as 
pans cf the manorial svstem. pridr to the time of th.e Confessor. It must 
be admitted, that this notice of pra?dial tenures is confined to a few counties, 
Gloucester, Hereford, Worcester, and Chester; but since the general 
description of the tenantry of those counties is in perfect accordance with 
that of the rest of England, Homines, "\'illani, Bordarii, Cotarii, and Servi 
ex!stli;g everywhere, there is ample ground for the conjecture, that services, 
such as were performed by tenants in those counties, were also due from 
tenants of the same class elsewhere. 

In the Exchequer Survey of the County of Gloucester (fol. 163, 166), 
we ficd a class of •' Liberi homines,"' with the peculiar appellation l^adche- 
nislri, who ploughed and harrowed at the court of the lord. The most 
remajkable notice of them is that in the Survey of the Manor of Der- 
beste, pan cf the possessions of St. Peter's Westminster. " De terra 
hujus manerii tenebant Piadchen', id est, liberi homines, tempore Regis 
Edwardi. qui tamen omnes ad opus donrini arabant et herciabant et falcabant 
et metebant." There were twelve or more tenants of this order holding as 
much as oi::e and two hides each. In the Survey of the Manor of Che- 
mesege, in the County of Worcester, (fol. 172 b.) an exemption from that 
predial service which consisted in attendance upon the Precaris or Boon 
days, seems to be implied in the words " excepto rustico opere, sicut deprecari 
poterat a p— ceposito ;"' obligation to this service being on the other hand 
implied in a corresponding phrase (fol. I74a): " Deserviebant sicut ab 
episcopo deprecari poterant." The tenants of the lands of St. Peter's West- 



INTIiODUCTlOV. XXIX 

minster, in Worcestershire, performed the fo;lov,)ng services (fol. 174 b) : — 
At Brigstchnistune the Villani and Bordarii rlcughed and sowed six acres 
with their own seed ; at Aicbintune six Coliberti performed the like services 
upon twelve acres, ar.d two tenants. Dnnniijg and Brictric — one holdins- 
four, the other three, hides of land, mowed in the lord's meadows, hv 
custom, one dav. At Longedune. in the time of the Confessor, nine " Liberi 
homines," who held eighteen hides of lands, mowed in the meadows one dav, 
and did service as they were enjoined. Ti.e "Radmani" (probably the 
Radchenistri) performed the same service at Poiwic : the phrase " scrviebant 
sicut alii liberi homines" occurs also several time=. To the manor of 
Wicelbold (fol. 176 b), which belonged to Earl Godwin, there were attached 
thirteen burgesses in Wick. *• Secantes duobus diebus in Augusto et Marcio 
et servient.es curiff," The account of the number of acres ploughed 
and sown with their own wheat bv the ter.ants of the Koval Manor of 
Leominster, in the County of Hereford, (fol. 179.) is remarkable, as beins: 
a double return, not only as is customary of the number of tenants of all 
classes at the two periods, the time of the Confessor and of the Conqueror, 
but also of the number of acres so^vD at both periods, being at the earlier 
140, and at the later period 125 acres. There were also twentv-five 
hides of land which, T. R. E.. were appendant to that manor, but which, 
T. R. W., had been apportioned amongst twelve or m.ore Norman chiefs, who 
were tenants in capite. The rents which were payable for these lands to 
the Manor of Leominster, T. R. E., are enumerated (fol. 180 b). There 
is some little obscurity in the terms of the return, which makes it doubtful 
whether these rents continued to be paid : but it would seem that, whether 
the ancient services w ere then rendered or not, there had been an obliga- 
tion upon the tenants to perform work for two days. The last and most 
interesting account which we have to produce from the Exchequer Survey 
(fol. 269 b), in illustration of the early existe.'^.ce of prc'pdial services, simular 
to those of later times, is one which relates to a large tract of country lying 
between the Ribble and the Mersey, comprising five hundreds, Derby, 
Kewton, Walintune, Blackburn, and Layland. which contained 188 manors, 
but which were esliniated to hidage at no mcrc' than ninety-nine hides, the 
Royal Manors being those which gave the names to the hundreds. More 
than thirty Thanes held manors within the Royal Manor of Derby. The 
customs upon which thev were held are fuhv enuiaerated, the particular

custom which elucidates our present inquiry being tills, thai everv thane 
was bound, on one day in August, to send Ijis reapers to cui xhc cvoi)S of 
the King. In the Hundred and 'Manor of Newton the free men (liberi 
homines) had the same customs as tlie n;en of Derbv: but the labour 
ser\-ice was greater, being two d;-ys" reaping in the Royal farms (culturis) 
instead of one. Salford and Layland lay at the greatest distance: and it is 
specially recorded of the men of those manors, that their '• consuetudints " 
were the same with those of Derby, &c., with this cxcej^tion, that th.cv did 
not perform work "ad aulam Regis," nor reap in the month of August. 
The whole contents of the Boldon Book, or Survey of the Manors of the 
Bishoprick of Durham, in 1182. published in the A])ppix;x to Domesdav,* 
might be quoted in proof of prsedial services performed in the north of 
England most closely resembling those of the south in 1.22 : and when it 
is considered how remote tlie dioceses of Durham and London are from 
each other, there seems no other method of accounting for such a similarity 
in the occupation of land and the relations of tenants to their lords, except 
on the supposition of a common origin, in some fundamental princijile of 
law. antecedent possibly by centuries to the time when we f rst find mention 
of them, as legal rights and legal duties. 

The inference to be drawn from this comparison of the praedial services, 
due in the thirteenth century from tenants of manors, v.ith the services 
recorded in the Exchequer Domesday, is scarcely of less extent than this ; 
that the social condition of England, as respects the relation between land- 
lord and tenant, which we find exemplified in the inanorial history of the 
thirteenth century, is of Anglo-Saxon character and origin : and that the 
Norman Conquest, in creating a numjber of povrerful barons, and depressin"- 
the Anglo-Saxon thanes, did not alter the relation between the owner and 
the occupier of the soil, which had existed for several centuries. Nor does 
this conclu-ion rest upon the Exchequer Domesdav alone. 

In the "• Ancient Laws and Institutes of England " there is a remarkable 
document, entitled, " Rectitudines Smgularum Personarum,'' v^hich presents 
to us an enumeration of the several classes of persons employed on a 
domain, of the services to be rendered by each, and of the reciprocal duty 
of the lord to those engaged on his land. The place assigned to it bv the ' 
learned Editor is betweeon the laws of Cnut and those of Edv\-ard the Con-

fessor. Manv of the usage? thoroin mentioned are not pcrfe'-.-tlv under- 
stood : but tlio general character of the services described in the " Recti- 
tiicines." so clostly corresponds uith the services which the St. Paul's 
DoHjesday states to be due from different classes of the tenar.:rv. as to 
render it almost certain, that the " Rcctitudines " reyjrcscnt ci;!v an older 
form of the same national institutions, the character of which, as afterwards 
roodined, is so plainly described in the records of the twelfth and thirteenth 
centiiries. Tiie first part of this document relates to four classes of persons, 
and treats of Thanes law, Geneates right, Cotsellan right, and Gebures right ; 
the services of the three latter classes being all praedial, and being distin- 
c-ulshed from each other either as occasional, or as being continued 
thro;.£-hout the whole year, on one or more davs of trie week. The Geneate, 
the Kotsetle, and tlie Gebur. appear to represent the "\hllani, Cotarii, and 
Borcarii of the Exchequer Domesday, though placed in a different order 
of precedence. In the list of services due from the Geneate or "N'illanus, 
there are many which are not found iu the Records of the St. Paul's 
manors to be due from the Liberi homines, whom we considered to be 
identified with the 'MUani of Domesday : and vet, when the Geneate is said 
to be bound "averiare." "summagiimi ducere," " metere et falcare,"' "stabili- 
tatein observare," " edificare ct circumsepire," just as the Hidarius of Hor- 
lock was bound, " falcare unam acram prati,"' " metere in autumno 
iii. f.cras," &c. " invenire in autumno iii. carros," '■ portare clausuram de 
parco et claudere vi. perticatas circa curiam,'' " facere bovariam ad suum 
cihum proprium," " de maireno domini, quod scindent et parabunt et caria- 
bunt, innovare granarium," the resemblance is so striking as to leave little 
doubt of the identity of the two classes from whom the same services were 
due. The accuracy of the conclusion is still more apparent, when the 
services of the " Geneate/" which were occasional, are contrasted with the 
daily services throughout the year, described in the Rcctitudines as due 
frorr. the two inferior classes, the Cotsetles and the Geburi. The Cotsetle 
worked for his lord every Monday ; in some places his labour in the month 
of August was limited to three days, but in others it extended to the whole 
month, and it v.as his privilege to hold five acres of land, more or l^s, 
according to the custom of the place. The Gebur's service was more ex- 
tensive ; he never worked less than two days in the week, and that through- 
out the whole year, and in addition to this service he liad pavmeni? to make 



yx.xn INTKODUCTION. 

of various kinds ; these services beii)g the counterpart of tliO^e of the tenaKts 
of Ardlev (p. 27). v.ho laboured every Monday (and v.ho at Castle Ccmbe 
vere termed Monday men), of the Operarii at Sandou (p. IS). %vho held 
five acres, ai.d of the other tenants upon all the manors of St. Paul's v,ho 
vrere bound to cor:stant weeklv service. The Gebr.r ar.d the Goueate 
existed as distinct orders at so early a period as the reign of Ina (Laws 6; 
19. 22) ; that the prsedial services, de-cribed in the " Piectitudices '" as due 
from them, vrere of as great anticuitv as the orders themselves, is probable 
from the repeated mention in the '• Rectitudines "' of the great variety of the 
services, dependant upon local custom ; and which may be attributed to the 
proo'ress of time modifving the customs, as well as to differences existir.g in 
a remote age. 

We conclude with rem.arking, that, if prior to tlie Conquest not 
onlv the duties of the labouring classes, but, as appears in the " Pa-ctitu- 
dines,'' the Thanes' law also, was well defined, and yet so varied, that from 
different lands the King could demand greater services, it becomes further 
probable, that in an age in which personal and prsedial rights were described, 
the names of those, from whom they were due, were described also ; and 
although we mov be disinclined to give credit to the statement of Ingulfus, 
that Alfred caused the divisions of his kingdom to be enrolled in a book 
resembling the Exchequer Domesday, we may yet be willing to accept the 
references, which are made in the '' Liber Evidentiarum ?Nlonast. S. Augijstini 
Cactuariensis '" (Bibl. Arundel, SIO) in four separate instances, to a 
Domesdav of Saint Edward, as indicating, that the survey of the Conqueror 
had its precedent in the previous age, and. as would appear from the 
Exchequer Domesdav itself, that the jurors of the hundreds performed a 
work in making their returns, which was not altogether new to then..* 

Manorial property was a possession differing in many respects from what 
is now called landed estate. It was not a breadth of land, which the lord 
might cultivate or not as he pleased, suffer it to be inhabited, or reduce it 
to solitude and waste ; but it was a dominion or empire, within which the 
lord was the superior over subjects of different ranks, his power over them 
not being absolute, but limited bv law and custom. The lord of a manor. 
who had received bv grant from the crown, saca and soca. tol and team, 
kc. was not merely a proprietor, but a prince; and his courts were not only 
* See Gentleman's Magaaine, .^pril, 1852, p. S69. 



i>'TKOUUCTiox. xxxiii 

courts of law, but frequently of criminal ji3?tice. The demesne, the cssised, 
and the wa?te lands were his ; but the usufruct of the assised lands belonged, 
on conditions, to the tenants, and the waste lands were not so entirely his, 
that he could exclude ;be tenants from the use of them. It was this double 
capacitv, in which the lord stood to his tenants, as the arlitor of their rights. 
as -svell as the owner of the land, wliich rendered it necessary to the due 
discharge of the dutv of his station, that the lord of a manor should be 
such a person as Fleta describes. Book II. cap. 7], § -2, " Truthful in his 
words, faithful in his actions, a lover of justice and of God, a hater of 
fraud and wrong ; since it most concerns him not to act with violence, or 
according to his o^vn will, but to follow advice, not being guided by some 
voung hanger on, souie jester or flatterer, but by the opinion of persons 
learned in the law, r.'ien faithful and honest, and of much experience.'" 

Manors were petTv rovaiiies: the court and household of the lord re- 
seniblino- in some degree that of the King. In Fleta (II. § 2- It) an account 
is given of the officers of the roval household, the Senescallus Hospitii 
Regis, who held his court in the palace : the Marescallus, the Camerarius, 
the Clericus coquiuce. and Clericus panetarii ; but in the latter part of the 
book, which treats of the management of manors, we find the lord of the 
manor attended bv the Senescallus, who held his courts, by the Marescallus, 
who had the charge of his stud, and by the Coquus, who rendered an 
account of the daily expenditure to the Senescallus. 

Regarded as landed estate, the manorial possessions of the Sovereign 
did not differ from those of bis subjects ; the profits, which were deri\ ed 
to the Crown from the manors, which formed the Terra Regis in the various 
counties, did not d-.ffer from those which the Barons or Bishops, or the Canons 
of St. Paul's derived from the manors in their hands. We have a proof of 
the correctness of this statement in the fact, that the Extenta Mancriorum,''* 
which contains the Articles of Inquiry made by the officers of the Exchequer 
into the condition and value of the royal manors, is the coTintcrpart, both of 
the Articles of Inquiry which Fleta recommends every lord of a manor to 
use for his own information, and also of those which are to be found in tliis 
volume (d. 133), as the Articuli Visitationis Maneriorum, exhibited by the 
Chapter of St. Paul's to their tenants in the year 1290. Wlicthcr a manor

dinate aeents to take charge of the territory, to cultivate the demesne, to 
exact the rents and services of the tenants, to gather in the produce, to 
transport it to the palace of the sovereign, or the chief residence of the 
lord, and to render an account of expenditure and receipt ; and it must be 
evident, that if the manors of any of the nobility approached in number to 
the manors of the crown, the n;:mber of their officers must have approached 
in number to the officers of the Exchequer. As respects the royal manors, 
the Ballivus of the hundred appears to have accounted to the Vicecomes 
of the county, who rendered his account to tliC Treasurer and Barons of 
the Exchequer, a court which had the power to compel any of the debtors 
of the Crown to render a just account. The statute law however authorised 
the lords of manors to constitute for themselves a court, with powers over 
their debtors or officers of account scarcely less than those of the Exchequer. 
By sec. xxiii. of the Provisiones of Hen. III., repeated in the Statutes of 
^Marlborough 52 Hen. HI. sec. xxiii., and strengthened by the Statutes of 
the Exchequer,* power v.as given to lords of manors to assign to their 
sergeants, bailiffs, chatnberlains, and other receivers. Auditors of accounts, 
which Auditors could commit to jail any person, certified by them to be in 
arrear as to their account, there to remain in irons, at their own cost, until 
they had fiillv satisfied their lords in respect of their arrears. 

For the management of the legal business of a manor, the collection of 
the revenue, and the cultivation of the demesne, the lord required three 
officers, the Senescallus, the Ballivus. and the Prjepositus. 

The Senescallus (who is represented in modern times by the Steward of 
courts) is described in Fleta ii. 72, as the Senescallus Communis :+ because, 
as it appears, the several manors, which belonged to his lord, were all com- 
mitted to his care, though it was not expected, that he should alwavs per- 
form his duty in person, nor oftener than was requisite for him to become 
fully acquainted with the manors. The person proper to be appointed to 
this office was one. who, having all the moral qualities of faithfulness,

sobrietv, and discretion, wa? well acquainted with tlie law and customs of 
the country (provincia) and with the nature of bis office, in order to main- 
taiuinar the rights of his lord, and iL'-tructing tlie under bailiffs in all their 
errors and doubts. It was his dz-y to hold the manorial courts, and 
generally to be acquainted with every particular relative to tlie manor, its 
extent; its cultivation, the number of teams and the condition of the stock, 
the conduct and behaviour of the bailiffs, the fines, ainerccments, reliefs, 
heriots, offerings, and sales, and the persons who have received such monies 
— and so also of wardships and mar;".agia — and of injuries or death hajipen- 
ing to the stock. He received aUo the account of the daily expen- 
diture from the various officers o: the household, but no money of any 
kind belonging to the lord came ir 'o his own hands. He was the legal 
adviser of his lord, the judge of his court, the guardian of his rights, and 
the person who was atquainted with every particular, as to the possessions 
and duties of every one connected with the management or cultivation of 
the manor. There were no rights cr duties of which the Court of Exche- 
quer took cognisance on the part of the King, of which, on a smaller scale, 
the .Senescallus had not also cognisai:ce on the part of the lord, the tenants 
of the manor standing in a relation to the lord, analogous to that in which 
tenants in capite and others stood to the Crown. 

Next in order to the Senescallus stood the Ballivus That he w.is an 
officer of authority mny be gathered from the mention made of him at 
Barling (p. 66), as directing the labour of one of the operarii ; and at 
Nastok (p. 75) as surveying the wit.dfall timber. He is also described (at 
p. 86) as the Ballivus manerii. who attended at the hundred court twice in 
the vear to perform service for th-:- manor of Chingford ; and it is also 
probable, that he is the officer, who as Serviens or Bedellus curia? directed 
the application of the labour of the tenants on the same manor (p. SB and 
89). But for the fuller account of Lis duties we must again refer to Fleta 
(c. 73). from whom we learn, that though generally charged with the cultiva- 
tion of the lands of the demesne, his chief labour and responsibility consisted 
in a diligent superintendence and ir:,spection of the works of ploughing, 
mowinn-, reaping, carrying. &c. whic:; were due frc'm the tenants, and to be 
performed bv them ; in taking care t: sum.mon all the teams, and to prevent 
their casting off, before thev had y crrormed their day's work, to measure 
the work done, and to ascertain whe-her it was good. Upon the Ballivus 



XXXVl INTKODVCTIOX. 

lay the duty, not only of ploughing the lands by the labour of the tenants, 
but also of getting in the seed: and the task was one, which manifestly 
required the utmost vigilance, when thev who ploughed the lands; and 
provided to a great extent the seed required; were not paid for their labour, 
and had no interest in ploughing and sowing lands to increase the profit of 
the lord at their expense. If the Ballivus had power to exact the labour, 
he had also every opportunity to harass the tenants in the discharge of his 
oflfice ; and therefore Fleta includes amongst the qualifications of the Balli- 
vus not onlv truthfulness, diligence, fidelity, and knowledge of the ordinary 
laws pertaining to his ofiice, but also '• quod sit ita Justus, quod ob vin- 
dictam vel cupiditatem non .quajrat versus tenentes Domini, vel aliquos sibi 
subcitos. occa^ir.res irjuit.'is. per quas destrui (destringi ?) deberent seu 
graviter amerciari." 

In the lists of the jurors prefixed to the Inquisitions of the IManors 
of St. Paul's in li:'22 we find frequent mention of the Prsepositus, at 
Kadendon. Sandun, Chingeford, Sutton, and Bernes. From the Survey of 
1:279 we learn, that certain of the tenants were compellable to accept this 
ofBce ; that it was an annual office ; and that whilst performing its duties 
the tenant was exonerated from other services ; and from Fleta, (c. 76) 
that the Prff>poiitns was elected by the "\'illata, presented to the lord, 
or to his steward, and by him invested vrithout delay in the office. 
His duties were supplements rv to those of the Ballivus : he shared v.ith 
him in exacting the services of the teams, and getting in the seed : but 
besides this he had the care of the manure of the farmyard, and the 
spreading it upon the land ; and to see that those, whose duty it was to 
cart the manure, performed each day the labour which was due. Besides 
oiher duties, he had tl e superintendence of the cattle, the horses, oxen, 
and cows, and also of the buildings and dead stock of the manor. We 
might, perhaps, term him the " foremian "' of the labourers ; and. as elected 
bv the villata. the protector of his fellows, in that he adjusted or 
settled, in conjunction with the Ballivus, the amount of labour to be 
exacted from the *cnants. or to be compounded for in money ; for we read 
in Fleta (q. Id ) that it was the durv of the Pra'positus every week to 
calculate with the BailiS' ti.e customs (consuetudines) of the week, and keep 
a tally of the davs' works, that so the arrears of the days' works might be 
ascertained, and. being co:i\erteJ into monev-pavmcnt, the re^x■nue of the

lord might be increased. The Pra^positus had also charge of the granary, 
to deliver by tallies corn to be baked, and malt to be brewed, and the 
bran and pollard to be used in making bread for the domes-tics, and in 
feeding the teams and the dogs It would be foreign to the purpose of this 
Preface, to exhibit more fully the description given by Fleta of the internal 
condition of a manor, and the method of it? cultivation; enough, however, 
may have been adduced to explain the relation, in which the tenants of 
manors stood to their lords, as cultivators of the demesne lands, and to 
show, how intricate must have been the system of account between the lord 
and the tenants, with lands minutely divided amongst a perpetually-varying 
tenantry ; and also how dependent the lords were, upon the faithfulness of 
their Senescalli, Ballivi, and Pra?positi. 

It appears then, that a ]\Iancr was both a Seignory and also a Farm; a 
Seignory, as respected the occupiers of the lands held by the payment of 
services, rents, reliefs, and heriots ; and a Farm, as respected the demesne 
lands ; the SenescalluSj or Steward, being the representative of the lord and 
the judge of the manorial courts ; and the Ballivus being the officer, who 
exacted the services due from the tenants for the cultivation of the demesne. 
In the case of a lord posses'^ing only a single manor, it is obvious that, 
though he was the chief of many tenants, his wealth consisted only in the 
produce of a portion of the land, and the annual or occasic nal payments of 
the tenants ; and if we might suppose that, in the earlier diviiion of the 
Anglo-Saxon kingdoms into manors, each m.anor bad its separate lord, the 
lords, as a body, would have been scarcely so wealthy as the ordinary 
class of country gentlemen of our time. Such, we may gather from the 
Exchequer Domesdav, were the Thanes of the time of the Confessor, whose 
lands and manors were conferred by the score and the hundred upon the 
Norman chiefs, whom William brought with him into England, and \s)xo 
formed a Baronial nobility, fewer by far in number than the Anglo-Saxon 
Thanes, but greatly exceeding that of the Anglo-Saxon Earls. The Norman 
lord, on becoming the owner of fifty manors and dispossessing the fifty 
thanes, does not appear to have altered the character and relation of the 
tenants ; the Villani and Bordarii and Cotarii and Servi remained in the 
same position, transferring to the u-e of one chief lord the services and 
customs before paid to the several owners, who had been dispossessed. 

It has been before observed, that maiiorial property, wlietiier belonging 



XXXVni INTRODUCTIOX. 

to secular persons or to ecclesiastical bodies, was identical in its character, as 
regarded the rights of the lord, the ser\ices of the tenants, and the general 
method of culture. The lords of manors, whether lavmen or clergymen, were 
equallv dependent upon the seasons, for the extent of their crops and the 
realization of their incomes. Against this uncertainty the lavman, who had 
no interests to consult, but those of himself and his family, could easily pro- 
vide ; but not so the dean and canons of a cathedral, v.ho had to furnish a 
fixed stipend and certain allowances from day to day for a large number of 
ministers and servants, forming a household of no inconsiderable extent : 
the want of maintenance would be at once the disorganisation, if not the 
dissolution, of the body. It was therefore necessary, that arrangements 
should be made, for drawing from the estates of the cathedral a permanent 
income and definite quantities of produce, and bv a sacrifice of a portion of 
the whole value of the estates to secure the remainder as a fixed and 
constant revenue. For this purpose it appears that, after appropriating 
certain lands, as prebends, for the support of each of the thirty Canons, the 
remaining manors of the cathedral were formed into a separate stock, 
denominated the " Communa." the management of which was the joint 
care of the resident members of the Chapter, as the separate prebends were 
of each of the Canons. Everv manor of the Communa was placed " ad 
firm.am '' in the hands of a -Firmarius;" who exercising all the rights, 
and performing all the duties of the Chapter, as the Lord of the Manor, took 
to his own use all the profits of the manor which were over and above the 
" firmae," which it was his dut v to render, and which consisted of certain money- 
payments and so many quarters of wheat, oats, and barley. The Firmarius 
held a beneficial lease. The Anglo-Saxon noun peoj-me is not " a farm," but 
"food;" and the verb peoj-mian is not to "farm or cultivate," but "to 
supply with food ; " and the " firmarius " was so termed, not because be 
cultivated the land, but because he was bound to furnish j:eo]^me or food 
of a certain amount for the supply of the cathedral body.* 

It is probable, that this mode of letting to farm the lands of monasteries 
and conventual bodies was in existence under the Anglo-Saxon kings : and 

* K firrna might be rendered eitl.er in produce or monev, as was the case in the 
manor of Belchamp (see p. 129), and hence the word_/?r7?ta acquired a secondary sense, 
and in process of time an estate "farmed " meant onlv an estate "rented." ;See 
Spelman, in voce Firma.)

xl INTRODUCTION. 

This appropriation of the manors of a cathedral to furr.ish a weekly 
supply of food, rcav be considered as an illustration of the notices, which 
perpetually recur in the Exchequer Domesday, of articles of produce, as 
well as sums of money, received from manors and counties under the 
denominstion •• firma noctis," £nd " firma diei." Sir lie'.iry Ellis, m h:s In- 
troduction to Domesday, p Ixxii.. enumerates thirty-one manors as rendering- 
such firma? to the crown in the time of the Confessor. From the fact that 
the manors in the counties of Wihshire, Dorsetshire, and Somersetshire, 
then subject to the firman were not only royal manors, but specially de- 
scribed as haviufr never paid "geld,"" and in some instances its being unknown 
to the jurors how manv hides the mianor contained, it maybe fairly inferred, 
that those manors were the inhe.^itance of the Anglo-Saxon kings ; and though 
from those alone, in the time of the Confessor, produce was supj'lied equal 
to the maintenance of the royal housel-old for only a few nights or days, it is 
probable that in still more ancient times the like provision v,as made for 
the whole year, according to the practice existing a century later in the 
cathedral of St. Paul. The amount of produce constituting the "firma 
unius noctis '" is not mentioned : but the sum paid by the county of Oxford, 
as a "firma"" for three nights, was one hundred and fifty pounds. And 
though, at first sight, the expenditure of so large a sum as fifty pounds 
(equal in weight to 150/. of our present silver coinage, and in value to ten 
or twelve times that sum) in a single night, would be scarcely credible : si ill. 
upon supposition, that these were the greater "firma;" expended at the 
o-reat festivals, when the King was surrounded by all his earls, and thanes, and 
bishops, and dispiaved his hospitality to the Court, and feasted the people of 
a city or town, the amount would hardly seem excessive, even supposing 
that the 50/, passed at once into the Royal Exchequer, unimpaired by fees 
and perquisites to the officers. 

The comiimtation into money rent of that fixed quantity of the produce 
of a manor, which was to be rendered in kind, was a process as natural as it 
was convenient ; and it would appear, that a " firma" paid in money w-as at 
one time distinguished by the term " firma alba.'" It is probable, that many 
of the manors belonging to the Conqueror paid their rents to the Ex- 
chequer in monev. and not in kind ; and yet the custom of rendering the 
firma- in kind was still so common, that the author of the " Liber Niger 
Scaccarii '" (quoted bv Spelman, in voce Firma). relates it, as the tradition of 



iyTRODrCT]0>'. xli 

his \\me, that in the primitive condition of llie kingdom afler tlie Conquest. 
provisions, and not gold or silver, were paid to the kiiigs from their hinds, 
out of whicli distribution was made of necessaries for tlie dailv use of the 
royal houseliold ; payment from other sources, and fw other purjioscs, 
being in money. The practice continued during the whole of the reign of 
William, and dov.-n to the tin:e of Hcnrv his son; the same author stating. 
that he had been acquainted with persons, who had themselves seen those 
provisions brought, at fixed times, from the estates of the king to the 
palace. Rents appear to have been paid in kind to the Chapters, for some 
time after tVicy ceased to be so paid to the Exchequer. The general un- 
willingness of churchmen to adrr.it of change, would be of itself sufficient to 
account for the continuance of a system of pavment, after it had fallen else- 
where into desuetude ; even had there not been found in the cathedral body 
a class of persons, namelv, the Firmarii, who derived a personal benefit 
from the ancient system, and whose relation to the Cathedral, as well as the 
duties incumbent upon them, we shall now describe. 

The earliest record of a manor belonging to St. PauVs being let to farm 
relates to the manor of Barnes, which in the vear 1108 was leased to two 
brothers, William and Walbertus, for the term of their lives, for a gift of 
ten shillings, and at the annual rent of eight pounds and a sextarius of wine. 
(See p. 127.) A lease of the manor of Cadendon was granted to Baldewin 
the son of Hnrro, one of the canons of the church, prior to the year 113S, 
Willielnuis the Dean, who died in that year, having been a witness to the 
execution of tlie lease. (See p. li*4.) The leases of Runwell and .•\dulves- 
nasa (see page l-o). the one to Richard the Archdeacon, the other to William 
of Occhendon, are of as early a date as 1 1 50; but whether this William de 
Occhendon, as well as one Hunifridus Bucvinte. who at that time held a lease 
of Kensworth (see page 12:^), were Canons of the Cathedral is uncertain. 
The Inquisition of 11 SI (see p. Ill) records the names of all the Firmarii 
of the manors at that period, of whom Nicholas de Sigillo. Ricardus Ruffus. 
Gilbertus, William Archdeacon of Gloucester, and Nicholas Archdeacon of 
London, were Canons of the Cathedral; but whether Hubertus Archdeacon 
of Canterburv. who was the Firrnarius of Cadendon and Kensworth, Robert 
de Fulham., ^^'lJliam and Theoccric, Oco de Dammartino, Johannes de Ma- 
regni, and Johannes, who held ^^'icha^:, Tiliingham. Norton, Nastock, and 
Bernes respectively to farm, were also Canons, dots not apj)ear. The same

remark is r.pplicaMc al^o to the FirrearJi of \he manors in 122:2, but with 
this addition, tliat ^ome relatives of the canons appear to liave been lessees, 
the ]ea=e conlinning in tlic same family for niore tlian a single generation. 
Thus v,-e fi!id ^^"ill;am de Burnham holding '.he Manors of Beauchamp and 
Adulve-n;>sa. which had been held bv Alardus de Burnham the Dean; and 
John de d'no Martino lield the manor of Norton, which Odo de d'no Mar- 
tino had before held ; and .Tohannes de Marinis was in 1181 Firrnarius of 
Xastock. prior to which time Hugo de Marinis was Dean. A century 
later, in 1315 (the Deanery was then vacant), all the manors were held 
to farm bv the following Canons: — 1. liichard de Xeuport, Archdeacon of 
.Middlesex, held two manors, Adulvesr.asa and Chingford; 2. Richard de 
Gravesend, the Treasurer, h.eld four, Cadendon with Kensworth, Ardeleyj 
and Runw.U: 3. Robert de Clothall. the Chancellor, had Barling; 4. 
Thomas de Northficet h;:d Drayton: 5. Tiiomas de Cobham had Bernes 
and Wicham ; 6. lienricus de Saracenls had Sandon with Norton and 
Tillincham ; 7. Walterus de Thorp had Sutton ; 8. Johannes de Ditton had 
Beauchamp: 9. Wilhain de Chadelshunt had Nastok ; and 10. Robert de 
Baldock had Heybrigge. 

It would be foreign to our present subject to explain in detail the labo- 
rious services during a year of probation, by which Canons of St. Pauhs 
became Residentiaries ; it v.-ill be sufficient to rea^ark, that of the Thirty 
Canons onlv a part were Residentiaries, that the number continually varied, 
that at the Reformation not m.ore than three or four of the Canons qualified 
themselves for the office, and that during the thirteenth and fourteenth 
centuries the Residentiary Canons, or, as they were also termed, the Stagiarii, 
were without exception the Firmaiii of the ?iIanors. In the year 1283, 
when the Deanery was vacant by the translation of Thomas de Ingoldes- 
thorp to the bishoprick of Rochester, Ralph de Baudake, then Archdeacon 
of ^Middlesex and Canon of the Church, had the lease of Sutton granted 
to him, " ob meritura residentife ;" and there are accounts in later docu- 
ments of meetings of the Residentiaries upon the death or removal of one 
of their bodv, at which each of them, according to their seniority, and 
'•■juxta cursum residentia?," either chose for himself the lease, or declined 
to take it. as each of the manors, which had been held by tl-e late member 
of the Chapter, was submitted to his option. The office of Firmarius was 
a source of wealth, and was limited to those who were Canons of the 



JXTi:oDUCTiox. xliii 

Cathedral, tlie practice of grantiiig manors to farm to otlier person? tlian 
members of the Church having forraerlv led to inconveniences, and en- 
dantrered the property of the Chapter. In the earlier leases we find the 
Chapter taking sureties for the performance of th.c covenants in ihe lease, 
and in s]>ecific terms guarding against the assumjition on the pai't of the 
heirs of the lessee of any hereditary right in the manor. 

The Firraarius on his acceptance of a lease, like the incoming tenant of 
modern times, had the particulars of the estate described to him, and the con- 
dition in which it was to be rendered, at the termination of the lease. It 
must however be borne in mind, that the state of the manors, as respected 
their cultivation, and the quality and quantity of the stock, was not uniform, 
and that accoidir.glv there is cons'.cerable variety in tr.e covenants of the 
leases. When possession was given to the Firmarius by some of the 
canons deputed for that purpose, an inventory was taken of the effects upon 
the estate and a return made in writing to the Chapter, (p. 130. line 4.) 
In the Inventory (x'ihich always formed part of the lease) a minute de- 
scription was given of the mansion and its buildings ; the halla or aula, 
its length and breadth and height, distinguishing the height above the 
tie-beam from that below it : the domus between the halla and the thalamus, 
the height; breadth, and length of each being similarly described, (p. 129, 
line 2.) A mansion of a different construction contained an aula, camera. 
and tresantia, et duee privatse domus. (p. 132, line 1.) In anotlier in- 
stance the hall had on the south " unum aiipendiriura " (p 136, line IS); 
attached to the dwellinr-hou-e were the coquina (kitchen), the bracinium 
(brewery), and the malthouse, the dairy, the henhouse (p. 132), the ba- 
terissa (washhouse), the porcaria (pigstve), the oxshed, the sheepshed, 
the lambhouse. (p. li'9.) 

In the invento.-ies of the live stock in the leases of the twelfth century we 
find oxen valued each at 2*. 4cl. and at 3s. Horses, in one place (p. 122), at 
]0s.. bnt in others at 3.*. (p. 126 ). and also at 5s.. 4s.. and 3.<;'. Sheep at 4c/. ; 
pigs, 5f/., Sd.. and 12d.; a sow with nine pigs, 19c/.; goats at 4d. In six 
plou<^h-tcams, five of them h-iving ten oxen and one only eight, the oxen 
were valued at S.^. each. Besides these, the geese, the cocks, and hens, and 
capons found a place in the Inventory, as well as the old cat and her young 
ones (p. 132); nor were the tables and benches, the pots and pans, the

^^"icham ihe largest barn was 55 feet long, but at \VElton there was one 
of 160 feet: and. as the barns were received by the Firmarius more or 
less full of all kinds of grain, he was bound to surrender them in the same 
state. 

The lands of the demesne appear generally to have had two parts of them 
sown with winter and spring corn, the remaining third being fallow; and 
as the Firmarius found the land sown with wheat, barlev, oats, beans, or 
peas, or in fallow, so he was to^render them. At Nastock (p. 133). the term 
for which the Firmiarius held the lease expired at Michaelmas, on which 
day he was bound to deliver up the great grange full, on one side of winter 
and on the other side of spring corn, and all the hav of the year, with 
the whole of the course in fallow, forty acres of it being twice ploughed 
(rebinatfe). and folded and manured according to his means. 

The Firmarius, as representing the Chapter, made agreements with the 
tenants for taking lands to rent, which the Chapter was sometimes bound 
by the lea.se to confirm (p. 125): in other cases the previous approval of 
the Chapter appears to have been necessary, as may be seen in the articles 
of visitation, (p. 157*.) 

The Churches or parsonages of the manors were frequently included in 
the lease. Thus at p. 1:^8 we read " tradiderunt ei canouici liberam 
ecclesiam ab omni persona,'" without a parson or rector, and in that 
condition it was to be restored. In the INIanor of Adulvesuasa there 
were three churches, at \^"alton, Kirkby, and Thorp ; and it was the con- 
dition, upon which Richard the Archdeacon of Middlesex held them about 
the year 1150 (see page 13f?), that he should keep them free iu his own 
hand, without appointing any parson to any of them, so that on the sur- 
render of the manor into the hands of the Chapter, the churches should be 
found without any parson appointed to them. 

In this way the Firn.arius of the early periods held both the manor 
and the church to farm ; a practice strongly denounced in the prologue to 
the inquisition of the churches belonging to the manors in 1181 (see 



INTRODUCTION. xlv 

page 146); but as it appears, rather for the sake of preventing temporal 
and spiritual dues from being confounded; to the diminution of the latten 
tlian with the intention of securing the revenues to the officiating clergy. 
The Dean cr.d Chapter kept the parsonages in their own hands, but as is 
stated, thev vrould appoint a vicar; for whose su|>port, if the altarage alone 
was sufficient, with that be was to be content; if it was insufficient, some 
decent addition was to be made at will out of the tithes. All other profits 
of the church, as well as the greater tithes, were to be reserved for the 
Canons, or be let to farm to the chaplains or clerks at an annual rent. 
That lord< of manors, being members of a cathedral, should appropriate 
to the use of their body the tithes of their lands, may not seem so 
much out of course : there is re?son howe^'er to believe, that the lord« of 
manors in general, of that age, were not satisfied with the simple right of 
advowson, and the privilege of norninating a clerk to the church ; and the 
numerous instances, which occur in the Exchequer Domesday, of churches, 
and even parts of churches, valued with the manors, especially in the 
county of Norfolk, seem to indicate, that the revenues of the Church, as well 
as the right of presentation, were in some manner divided to the advantage 
of the lords. 

It appears from the inquisition of 1!S1 (pages 140 — 152), that the 
Canons of St. PauVs derived a revenue from nearlv all the churches of their 
manors, and that it was naid either directly to themselves by some Clericus, 
to whom thev were entrusted, or to their Firmarius. Thus Cadendon paid 
to the car.ons '20s. bj the hands of Rodbert and Rodbert, clerks ; Kens- 
worth 20s. by Augustine the Clerk ; Ardeleia was held by Hamo Clericus, 
and paid three marks and a half; Willesdon paid eight marks, by Germanus 
the Clerk : Tidwoldintun paid 20.<;'. by the hands of Hugo de London. 
Other Churches paid as follows : Sandon. which in the time of King Henry- 
was not in the firma of the manor, and rendered nothing, paid five marks 
to the canons by the hands of Richard the Canon, the Firmarius ; Tilling- 
ham one mark, by the Firmarius ; Barling 20*. ; Nastock GOs., Dravton 
135. 4d., Sutton 10.?., in the s:.me manner. The Firmarius derived a reve- 
nue, to hin."iSe;f from the follovs-ing churches: From Waleton 20.<-., from 
Thoip 20.. 

Only three of the Churches had a '' rcrsona," namely, Belchamj), 



xlvi INTEODUCTIOX. 

Wichuin. aud Runwcll. P;ut there was a " Sacerdos " at Bernes. The 
parson of Belchamp. however, paid a mark to the Firmarius, and the parson 
of Wicham two shilhngs annually to the canons.* 

The privileges and emoluments of the Firmarii, as the leaseholders of the 
manors, and representatives of the Chapter, being thus described, we pro- 
ceed TO irive an account of the '^ firma"" which they rendered. 

Each " firma" at St. Paul's was considered to be the " firma " or food 
for a sino-le week. If a manor rendered several firraffi in the course of the 
rear, it was sometimes agreed that the payment should be wholly in money, 
in which case the " firma"' was said to be " in dcnariis " ; but the firma 
o-enerallv consisted of produce as well as money. In the leases of the 
twelfth cen'iurv wc read, that Wicham was leased for life, on tlie condition of 
paving in the first vear Iviii.'-. iiiicZ and one " par^•a firma panis et cervisire 
cum vii(/. elemosinfe,'' and in the following year two similar firma?, and with 
each fiftv shillings in monev : the firma to be rendered on the feast of St. 
Martin and the Nativity of John the Baptist, being Sunday, or on the 
Sunday preceding. In the lease of Cadendon (p. 124) we read of the 
'• plenaria firma,'' but we have no trace in later documents of the distinction 
between the " plenaria *' and the " parva firma.'" In the same lease we 
find mention of another sum of money, termed "liberatio," which amounted 
to 1/. IQs. 4c/.: the full description of a firma being that in the manor 
of Sandon (p. 134), " firma, in pane et cervisia, et liberatione. et ele- 
mosina. et constantiis pistrini et bracinl.'" the firma in pane et cervisia 
being produce in grain ; the liberatio. money for wages ; the elemosina, 
alms to be distributed at the Cathedral ; and the constant!^ pistrini et 
bracini. a pavnaent for wood to be used in the bakehouse and brewery- 
The reader will bear in mind that this description of the firma is of the 
earlv date of 1150: for the appropriation of the firma? we must refer to the 
Compotus ]^Ianeriorum (p. 153 — 164), which exhibits the number and 
qualitr of the firma?. as paid and received at St. Paul's, at the conclusion of 
the thirteenth century. In that document we find the payment in produce 
distin2"uished from, the monev payments, the latter described as payments

" ad dents et ad dcr.\im denariuni," and also as " dizonrp,"* or as otherwise 
written " disange ; "' the former as " firmas." A single dizcna amounted to 
three marks (forty shillings) and seven pence, of which two marks and a 
lialf (1/. 13.*. 4^.) was for the libcratio; or nioney payments for wages, half 
a mark (6.v. 8d.) for the constantia pistrini et bracini, i. e. wood for the 
brewery and bakehouse, and the remaining seyen pence for alms. 

The dizena has been thus divided on the authority of the statement 
made in pages loo, 156 ; which shews that after deducting the sums, either 
" ad defectum bracini."" or " ad supplementum," there always remain 
the two marks and a half, 1 /. 13.v. 4d. Thus the payment from Beau- 
champ, 60s. — 1/. 6s. Hd. = il. \oi-. 4d. The payment from Barling, 
40.S. — 6-. Srf. = ]I. ]'3s. 4d. That the half-mark thus described as paid 
ad defectum bracini. or ad supplementum, was for wood used in brewing 
and baking is shown by the statement in p. 160. that with every firma 
Gs. Su. was paid *' ad boscum.'' And it is to be remarked, that tlie pay- 
ments made by Beauchamp twice in the year, of II. Gs. 8d. each, together 
four m.arks, was at the rate of half a mark for each of the eight Sundays, 
on uhich payments were due from that manor. We identify the 1/. 13s. 4d. 
paid every week to be " liberatio," that is, money paid in wages, by an entry 
in the Statuta Majora, (which states that, according to ancient custom, the 
following payments had been made v.etkly to the following persons.) and 
also by an entry in the inquisition of Nastok (Book I. p. 77), where the 
40s. paid by the firmarius is said to be " ad denas yicariorum."

tions, V.-25 fortv-ninc. Every Sunday in the year, commencing v.itli the 
festival of St. Faith, en the 6th of October, had its dizena, paid by each 
manor in reirular succession, on move or on fewer Sundays, according to 
the asfieement made vrith the Firmarius, and tlie extent of the manor It 
is probable, that in the ancient adjustment of the firraa?, corn was delivered 
every week throughout the year: but at the end of the thirteenth century we 
find tlie firmse. which consisted of wheat, barley, and oats, delivered on no 
more than fortv-five Sundavs of the year, the delivery of the corn com- 
mencing at the same time as that of the dizense, on the festival of St. Faith. 
The manor, hcwever, which paid the dizena in money on the one Sunday 
did not pav the firm.a in produce until the Sunday following, so that for 
the same Sundav the dizena was paid by one manor, and the firma by 
another. 

The forry-five fim-.ac were furnished by thirteen manors. Each firma 
consisted of sixteen quarters of wheat, sixteen quarters of oats, and three 
quarters of barlev, the whole quantity delivered in the year being 720 
quarters of wheat. 7i?0 quarters of oats, and 13o quarters of barley, con- 
taining, ad roensuram Fiegis, eight bushels per quarter. In the year 1250, 
the price of wheat being -is. per quarter, of barley 2.'>-' Cd. and oats 20c?. 
the whole value of the corn, aiid other payments, was estimated at 277^. 

It onlv remains, that wes hould give an account of the use which was 
made of the cora thus delivered, of its conversion into bread and beer, and 
its division among the members of the Cathedral. On the west side of the 
street now called Godliman Street stood the bakehouse : it was a large 
building, and its place is still identified by Paul's Bakehouse Yard. The 
brewery probably adjoined it. There was a mill for grinding the corn, 
worked bv hor>es. There were four servants in the bakehouse, three in 
the brewerv, and two st the mill, besides a clerk of the receipts. The 
brewerv and the bakehouse were under the charge of an officer, the Gustos 
Bracini. In 1283 Thomas de Couling, and in 1286 John de Braynford, 
hdd the office : a copv of the Compotus rendered by them in those years, 
recorded in Book I. will be found at p. 165. 

From these document; it appears, that in the year 1283 the number of 
bakings was one hundred and thirty-seven ; they baked at least five times 
in everv fortnis-ht : four quarters of wheat — containing not eight bushels, 
according to the mensura Regis, but seven bushels, ad mcnsuram bracini — 



INTliODUCTIOX. xlix 

were ground for each baking. The 'jumbcr of loavci jiroduced was, in 
the whole vear. 40.266. and tlie averasje number from each baking 290. 
We learn from an entry in tlic first page of Book L., that Ailwardus 
Rufus, one of the Canons (Archdeacon of Colchester circa 11.50), Mas 
Custos Bracini and Pistrini, and that in his time the greater loaf of the 
Canons of St. Paul's weighed seven marks, one ounce less, the lesser loaf 
half that weight : but that from the third year before the death of King 
Stephen (in 1154) the greater loaf weighed six marks and a half, the lesser 
three marks and two ounces. The four loaves therefore, which every Canon 
then rectiveG every day, namelx' two large and two small, weighed together '- 
nineteen marks and a half; and, the mark being eight ounces, or two-thirds 
of the pound trov. the whole weight of the bread per day was 156 ounces. 
The loaf of St. Paul's, the same document informs us. was larger than that 
of other religious houses. The loaf of the Canons Regular of Holy Trinity, 
London, weighed three marks six ounces. The same was the weight of the 
loaf of the Canons of Merton, whilst that of the Canons of St. Bartholomew 
weighed only two marks one ounce. We notice these facts as indicating 
that other religious houses' received rents in kind, in the same way as 
St. Paul's, and that the rents so paid were distributed in a similar manner. 
The daily distribution of bread to the different members of the cathedral 
in the year 1283 was as follows : — 

To each of the thirty Canons three loaves per day ; 

total in the year ....... 32,760

It appears from the Compotus Bracini of 1283 that^ —

The value of the loaf, and of a gallon of beer, were each of them three

"We have thus seen in what manner, and for what purposes, the firmarii 
delivered at the Cathedral the weekly firms of money and produce, and also 
the method of its distribution. It appears, however, that the business of 
the mill, of the brewery, and the bakehouse, upon taking account of the 
expenses, and making the accustomed deliveries of bread and beer to all 
the members of the Cathedral in their fixed p>roportions, left a profit, which 
was divided amongst the Canons in residence. In 1286 the sum to be 
divided was 25/. 19.^. Id. In 1283 it was 24/. 6s. lid. The particulars of 
the distiibution we have thought it convenient to state at full length, not 
merely as shewing the interest which the Residentiary Canons had in the 
profits, and in the distribution of the " Communa," but the manner in 
which residence was kept by the canons in tlie latter part of the thirteenth 
centurv.

Such was the mode in which the " firmfe," received in kind at St. Paul's 
at the end of the thirteenth century, were distributed, and there is reason 
to believe that, during the greater part of the following century, they con- 
tinued to be regularly paid, that the wcirk of the bakehouse and the brewery 
went on without interruption, and that the statutable distributions of bread 
and beer were made to the members of the Cathedral. The documents, 
however, of the early part of the fifteenth century contain proof, that 
the social changes and political disturbance?, v,hich were then taking place, 
affected the Cathedral property, as respected its nature and management. 
The firmae were no longer recrularlv distributed, the manors were unable to 



INTKODUCTION, ]{[[ 

provide tlie nt?ce=pary supplies, leases were granted for sliort periods to 
otlier persons than members of the Chapter; and towards the end of the 
century the tiriuae ceased, and the rents appear to have been v.'hollv paid 
in monev. 

It li;ai been provided by the statutes of Ralph de Diccro (v.ho was Dean 
in llSl). in case of dearth or pestilence occurring in the manors, that 
the delivery of bread and beer to the non-resident members should un- 
dergo n reduction of one loaf and one gallon of beer per diem until the 
return of plenty ; and further, that in case of dearth the firmarii should 
not be bound to deliver from their manors more wheat, barlev, or oats, 
than they were accustomed to pay; nor was any firmarius required to deliver 
any corn, but that which was of the growth of the manor, only it must 
be the best of that which was there grown. It was also ordained, that 
good beer should be brewed for the Iie^ider.tiaries. and coim/wn beer for 
other persons. 

But it would seem that otlier than natural causes, such as are men- 
tioned in the statutes of Ralph de Diceto, disturbed in the fourteenth cen- 
tury the delivery of the firmse ; for during the Episcopate of Simon of 
Sudbury, who was consecrated Bishop of London in 1361, it was ordained 
by an injunction, that a fine of 10.<-. should be inflicted upon the firmarius, 
who failed to deliver the firraa? within fifteen days of the appointed time, 
and that if he continued in arrear. his lease should be forfeited, and given 
to the next expectant Canon. We learn, moreover, from an injunction of 
Robert Bravbrooke, Bishop of London, bearing date 20 Oct. 1401 (in 
which the injunction of his predecessor, Simou of Sudbury, is recited), 
that irregularities existed to such an extent, as not only to deprive the non- 
residents, but also the minor Canons and other inerabers, of their usual 
allowances. The complaint came before the Bishop at his visitation; a 
fresh injunction was issued, with the consent of the Dean and the Chapter; 
the previous injunction of Simon of Sudbury was renewed, and the deli- 
verv of bread and beer to all the members enjoined according to the ancient 
custom. The Chapter was further directed to choose one of their ov\n 
bodv, in the first week of October in each year, to be the Custos Bracini, 
and upon him was laid the duty of delivering the bread and beer ; the 
bread was to be served as before, but in lieu of beer five marks were to be 
given to every Canon, and to all other persons sums of money propor- 



liv INTRODUCTION". 

tioned to their allowance. The ohservance of this iniunction was enforced 
under peril of the greater excomuiiinication. 

Causes, however, were in operation, to which we shall presently advert, 
which rendered even the fear of the greater excommunication inefiective 
to produce perpetual obedience ; for it is recorded in the Siatuta Minora 
(fol. 102), that on the 20 Oct. 143S, Robert Gilbert, Bishop of London, 
sate judicially in the Chapter-liouse, Reginald Kentwoode. the Dean, and 
.Tohn Bermingham, a (solitary) residentiary, being present also; and that 
there appeared personally thirteen of the non-resident Canons (the names 
are recorded), who made conr.daint to the Bishop, that in violation of the 
ancient customs of the Church and of the episcopal injunctions, from the 
feast of St. Anne (July 20) last past up to that day, no bread had been 
delivered, and that the beer had been kept back for more than three years. 
A conference took place bet\^een the Dean and the residentiary on the one 
part, and three of the Canons on behalf of the non-residents, and a fresh 
episcopal injunction was given to the Dean to pay to the complainants, 
before the feast of All Saints, what was due for bread from the feast of 
St. Anne to Michaelmas, and what was due from ^Jichaelmas to the day 
of the visitation, before the end of the year. The arrears cf pavrocnt for 
beer of the three preceding years were also to be satisfied before the 
Christmas following. To this injunction Dean Kentwoode and John Ber- 
mingham, the residentiary, s"ave their consent, and promised compliance. 

These incidents are related, not as anecdotes of capitular irregularities. 
but as clear indications of circumstances having occurred, which had altered 
the property of the Chapter, and disturbed the ancient arrangements. In 
the case of the manor of Nastock. it appears that in the year 1403 the 
rents of that manor had ceased to be in " firma?.'" A lease was granted in 
that year of the manor, the presentation to the vicarage, the tithes and all 
the appurtenances of the manor, to Laurence Allerthorp, a residentiary^, at 
the annual rent of 40/., of which 18/. 7*. 8f/. represented the ancient 
firms of corn delivered to the brewery, and 21/. 12.<;. 4(1. the value of the 
manorial rights and the tithes ; the preamble of the lease stating, that the 
manor was granted on these terms, as well because " propter insufiicientiam 
suam ad supporiationem onerum ab antiquo impositorun: eidem sufficere 
non valebit," as " propter alias causas veras ac legitimas tia^c assignatas et 
capitulariter approbatas." Iv. 1421 a departure was made from the ancient 



IXTIIODUCTION. Iv 

practice of limiting the leases to members of the Catliedral, and a leas-e for 
five vcars was granted to Reginald Malvns esquire, of the family of the 
De Malyns, who were lords of the adjacent village of Theydon Mount. 
The rent was only 36/. ISs. 4d.. but the Chapter reserved to themselves, 
what we should now term the manorial rights, as well as the presentation 
to the vicarage. In 1-3 25 a similar lease was granted to Roger Passelewe 
of Chipping Ongar, yeoman, and four others, at the increased rent of 42/. ; 
but in 1429, and to the year 1499, the manor appears to have been once 
more leased to residentiaries only, at the diminished rent of 33/. 6s. ScL, of 
which I !/. IS.-^. 4d. instead of 18/. Is. &d. as in 1403, was payable to the 
brewery : a clear indication that the agricultural produce of the estate had 
})roportionriblv diminished in value. 

It cannot be doubted, that the condition of the landowners throughout the 
kingdom was materially affected by the wars of the Roses, and that the un- 
settled condition of the country throughout the greater part of tlie fifteenth 
century must have weakened in a great degree the authority of the lord over 
his tenants, and diminished the number of the tenants, and consequently the 
value of those praedial services in which the wealth of the Lord consisted. 
The decay, however, of praedial service had begun in the previous century ; 
political disturbances hastened its dissolution, but it would probablv have 
passed away under the influence of causes such as these, namely, commutation 
of services for fixed money payments, changes in the population, and the 
progress of commerce and trade, \\hich gradually raised up a class of 
yeomen, who occupied a middle and independent ]ioEition between the lord 
of the manor and his customarv tenants. 

Of the accumulation of land by individuals in tlie same Manor there are 
traces in the Records of St. Paul's at as earlv a period as 1279. 

At that time. John Durant, whose ancestor in 1222 possessed only one 
virgate in Cadendon, appears on tlie Court Roll as possessing eight or ten 
tenements at least, which had been formerly held by other persons At 
Eelchamp two tenants of the higher order, the Liberi Homines, the one, 
Martin de Suthmere, held by himself and his tenants 245 acres of land in 
the manor, and had twenty-two tenants rendering service to himself; the 
other. Robert Luckyn, held in the same manor 69 acres, and had twelve 
Tenants doing him service. It is remarkable alsO; that the name of the Earl 
of Oxfoid ajipears in the same Inquisition, as holding 17 acres of land in

the manor, and rendering service for tlicm to Martin ce Suthrnere. It is 
ea?v to imagine, th.-it the growth within the manors of such a body of 
tenantry, having tenants under them, would gradually counterbalance the 
influence of the lord, especially if he were not resident on the manor. 

In the most ancient form of the manorial svstcm it is probable, that all 
the profits of the lords, except the landgafol, which was a monev pavment, 
were derived from the labour of the tenants and from the contributions of 
produce paid in kind; the demesne lands were ploughed and sown by the 
tenants, ihe crops were gathered in, the sheep were sheared, the malt for 
beer was made, the vrood for the supjily of the hall was hewn and stacked, 
the watch and ward of the manor was kept by them. Hens and capons at 
Christmas and eggs at Easter replenished the larder of the lord. There was 
scarcely anv want w hich the service of Cue tenants did not supply for the lord, 
even to the making hot the water and preparing the bath. (Chingeford, 
Book I. fol. 63.) In the earlier condition of the manorial households and ma- 
norial society these burdt-ns might have been cheerfully borne ; but it is most 
probable, that, as time advanced and society changed, ancient duties became, 
from various causes, both burdensome to those who performed tliem, as well 
as less agreeable to those to whom they were due; and that the lords were as 
willing to receive malt^ilver, woodsilver, schepsilver,* lardersilver, and ward- 
penny, and a halfpenny or a penny in lieu of a dav"s Lbour, as the tenants 
were to relieve themselves by such payments from the personal performance 
of the services. That a change might take place in the value of money, 
and reduce these payments to a nominal value, or that tlie time might come, 
when the halfpenny, originally given in lieu of a day's labour, could no 
longer purchase it, or that there might be no labourers to be hired, was a 
thought, which never entered into the minds of men, who had neither per- 
sonal experience, nor historical knowledge of changes now familiar to the 
mind of every student of political economy. As property passed, with 
the consent of the lords, from one person to another, the commutation 
of services due to the lord into money payments became more frequent, 
of which the phrase, so constantly occurring. '" pro omni servicio,"" 
is abundant proof. The direction also, which is given in Fleta, ii. 72, 
to the Praepositus. not only to compute with the Ballivus once a-week 
what customary labour was due. and to mark on the tally the day's work

performed, but also to look Efter the arrears of laVour. and if ])C5sible to 
receive money in lieu of them for the ougnaentation of the rent, is a further 
evidence of the readiness of the landlord to receive monev in lieu of labour. 

It is evident, that the constant progress of a svstfnn of commutations 
would at last leave the lord of the manor in the condition of the landlord of 
our ovrn times, v\ho must hire but cannot command labour. That toe in- 
convenience of having commuted labour for monev was at last sensiUv fc-lt 
by the landed propi-ietors, appears from the Statute of Labourers, '23 Ed. III. 
1349: prior to which time changes had taken place, which broug:.t into 
existence a bodv of persons resembling the labourers of tlie preser.: dav ; 
men, who labour for their subsistence, but who are free to choose a 
master and to agree with him for vcages. The growth of this class had 
probabiv made the landlords more ready to forego the preedial services of 
their tenants; but when the pestilence of 134!). alluded to in the Statute, 
had so reduced the number of labourers as to enhance the value of labour, 
to the great loss of the landed proprietors, recourse was had to the .'Statute 
of 1349, and to a series of similar Statutes between that year and 
1368; which had the twofold object, first, of compelling every ablebodied 
man. who was not hired, to hire hiinself to the master, who should demand 
his services; and seconciv. of lin'iiting the amount of the wages, which he 
was to receive. 

The Manors, the lords of which had commuted the prtedial services of 
iheir tenants for money payments, would be those in which the free 
labourers most abounded, and in which the owner of the laud was most de- 
pendent upon that class, for the means of cultivating the soil ; but when the 
Statute of Labourers was first enacted, the whole of the country was not as 
vet in this condition ; there was still a large portion of it, in which the 
ancient services remained due, but in which, as the growth of wealth had 
produced anew order of landowners, the performance of Mllain services had 
become odious or inconvenient, and the "^'iliains withdrew the services and 
customs which were due to their lords The fir^t indication which the Statutes 
of the Realm contain of this change in the behaviour of the Villains or cus- 
tomarv tenants, is in the Statute of 1 Richard 11. a.d. 1377, from which it 
appears that the*' Villains, and tenants of laud in villainage, withdrew their cus- 
toms and services from their lords, ha vir.g attached them; elves to other persons, 
who m^ahitained and abetted them ; and who, under colour of exemplifitauons

from Domesday of the Manors and Villes in wliich they dweh. and by wiong 
interpretation of those exemplifications, claimed to be quit and discharged of 
all manrjer of service, cither of their body or of tlieir lands, and would suffer 
no distress or other course of justice to be taken against them ; the 
Villains aidins' their maintainers. bv threatening- the officers of their lords 
with peril to life and linib. as well as bv open asseniblies and bv confede- 
racies to support each other." It is manifest, that the persons designated ir 
the Statute, as Counsellors, Maintainers. and Abettors, were men of statior 
as well as substance ; the process by which they became connected with 
the Villains, being, as is expressed in the Statute, " the taking hire and 
profit of the Villains and land-tenants.'" Eeft-rence v,as made to Domes- 
day to prove, that the manors to which the ^'i^lains belonged were Ancient 
demesne ; and it is evident from the term.s of the petition in the Rolls of 
Parliament, which preceded the enactment of this Statute, that the \ illains 
were the persons, who took the pains to procure these exemplifications.* 
The tenants in Ancient demiesne had the privilege of freedom from toll in 
all the markets of the kingdom :| but some other privileges niust have 
belonged to them, if, under colour of these exemplifications, the ^'illains 
could withdraw their services from the lords of other manors. The case 
was probablv this, tliat the tenant of Ancient demesne could not be pro- 
ceeded against for subtraction of services, except in the Court of the Manor 
of Ancient Demesne, and thus he was enabled to set at nought the power 
of the coVirt of other manors, in which he held land and was liable to service. 
Manors of Ancient demesne were not always in the hands of the Crown, 
but as it would appear, were possessed bv lords, who were willing to 
derive pecuniary advantage from selling the privilege of holding in Ancient 
demesne. The supposition that the immunities of such tenancy were avail- 

* The desire, however, on tbe part of the tenants to prove tbemfceives in Ancient 
demesne was of much earlier date than 1377. Tbe Rotuli Hundredorum of 7 Ed. I. 
give testimony of unfounded assertions on tbe part of the Villani of njaDors, that they 
held in Ancient demesne. See Vol. II. pp. 843, 844. 

t Tt appears also that tbe tenant in Ancient demesne was exempted from the 
necessity of taking upon biro knighthood for lands so held, for we read in the Statute 
for respitinc Knighthood, •' None by reason of any land that be boldetb in manors 
which now are Ancient demesne of the Crown, as Sokemen, and wliicb lands must also 
give talliEge when the King's demesnes are tallied, shall be distrained to take upon him 
tbe order of a Knight." Statutes of the Realm, vol. i. p. 229.

able against the lords of otlier manors, and that they might be so obtained, 
will explain a statement of the Statute of 1 llichard II. above referred to, 
not otherwise easy to understand, " that divers people of small revenue 
of lav:Q, rriit. or other possessions, did make great retinue des gens, as well 
of esquires as cf others, giving them hats and liveries, but not at their own 
cost; the value, or twice the value, being given by those persons " for the 
Maintenar.ce so acquired ; and which, as is evident from the ninth section of 
the same statute, consisted in protection against legal claims upon their 
lands and tenements, their goods and chattels. 

The cessation of pra?dial service was the result not of one, but of several 
causes. The exact period of its extinction may not be discoverable, and 
prob3b''v rercnaTits of the svstem existed at a comparatively late period in 
particular localities ; but if the same course of events happened in other 
manors, v^hich took place in the manor of Castle Conibe, the commutation of 
services ir.to rent was efiecied prior to 1450; the Court Rolls of that 
manor of the latter period describing all the tenants as payers of rent, and 
making no mention of the personal labour, which in 1340 had been due. 

We hare now brought our observations to a close: they have occupied a 
wider rar-ire than was originallv intended ; but if any fresh light has been 
thrown ur-on the nature of Anglo-Saxon society, the condition of England 
in the centuries succeeding to the Norman Conquest, the original character 
of manorial tenures, the relations between the owner and the occupier of 
the soil, £_s well as upon the management and disposition of Cath.edral lands 
and revenues, the labour occupied in the composition and illustration of this 
volume will not have been spent in vain ; especially, if the bringing these 
documen:.s to li?ht should lead to an investigation of the archives of other 
Cathedrals, and to a closer study of the chartularies and lieger-books of the 
conventuil bodies, which are deposited in our public libraries^ or are to be 
found amongst the records of the Augmentation Office. It is not a matter 
of mere antiquarian curiosity, what were the laws of Ina or of Alfred, or 
how societv was constituted and justice administered under the Anglo-Saxon 
and An_-.:»-Norman kings, for we mav safely affirm, that without the know- 
ledge of the principles and practices of those remote ages, the Common 
lawvcr c: the present dav will often find himself at fault, not merely for the 
deatiit'.on of a term or the meaning of a word, but even for a principle, upon 
which to found an argument, and to decide between conflicting rights and

di.ities. Neither is English history limited to the period whicli has passed since 
tlie Reformation, or since the Conquest ; it comprehends the reicrns of the 
Anglo-Sa^on kings ; and. as the earlyoccupalion of the " litus Saxonicum " 
in our southern counties testifies, it is united v.ith the historv of ancient 
Britain and ancient Rome. From chroniclers and historians wc- mav learn 
the relation in which England has stood to the nations around us, the 
intrigues of our nohles, and the vices or virtues of cur kings : but it is 
in the records, which, exhibit to us the means and circumstances under 
which the mass of the people earned their daily bread; in the household 
accounts of the chieftain and the prince ; in the wills of the dead, and in 
their private litigations and contests, their dealings and bargains when 
alive, that we discover our historv as a people, and can trace the steps, by 
which property has been acquired, and has passed from one class to 
another, from the peasant to the yeoman, and from the lord to the trader 
and the merchant, and by which England has become what it is — the 
country of the freest and wealthiest people in Europe. 

P.S. — In the early part of the foregoing Introduction (p. ix.) an account 
was given of various Domesday books ; we must be permitted to add to the 
list another Royal Domesday, not heretofore descril)ed under that title, but 
which forms the largest portion of the Second ^"olume of the Rotuli 
Hundredorum, published in 1&12. The " Rotuli" are copies of returns 
made to Royal Inquisitions at two distinct periods, the third and the seventh 
years of Edward I.; but it is to be observed that the inquisitions at the two 
periods were for different purposes, and the articles exhibited to the jurors 
wholly different. The object of the earlier inquisition was to ascertain the 
cases in which the rights and liberties of the Crown had been withdrawn, 
and in which excesses had been committed hv the sheriffs, coroners, 
escheators, and bailiffs; the Subject, as well as the Crown, was interested in 
that inquiry. But the later inquisition produced a perfect Domesday, or 
record of landed property, in the five counties — Bedford, Buckingham, 
Cambridge. Huntingdon, and Oxford. Each Hundred had its separate jury, 
who reported the names of all the landowners and occupiers of land, the 
quantity of land held by each of them, the rents paid, and the services ren- 
dered, the tenants of the manors being generally described under four 
classes — Liberi Tenentes, Villani, Cotarii, and Servi ; but in some places

^vi^iJ varied titles, such as Lib^ri Sokmaniii, Custumarii, Consuetudinarii, 
Operarii, Coterelli. Cotagiarii, Servi, Socomaimi, Nativi, Boiidagii, (tc. The 
Kotuli of these five counties being abstracts or digests of inquisitions 
made in the separate Hundreds of each county, contain the materials, 
from which a document might be compiled, which would resemble the 
Exchequer Domesday in nearly every particular, but the enumeration of 
the live stock on the different manors ; and would show, who were 
Tenants in Capite, the persons who held lands under therR, the number of 
Liberi Tenentes, Villani, Cotarii, and Servi, on each estate, and the sum of 
the rents paid.

of a manor. See Fleta., ii. 71, sec. 3. The Articles of Inquisition, upon which 
the Domesday of St. Paul's, of Ralph de Diceto, in 1181, was founded, 
are recorded at p. 112 of this volume; those used at a later period 
are given at length, pp. 150-160. and are found to agree in their general 
character with the " Extenta Maneriorum'" in the Statutes of the Realm 
(vol. i. p. 292) ; and also with the Articles of Inquisition upon which the 
returns were made in the 7 and 8 Edw. I. of the condition of the manors 
in five counties, Bedford, Buckingham. Cambridge, Huntingdon, and 
Oxford, and which form the latter part of vol. ii. of the Rotuli Hun- 
dredorum.

At Nastok (p. 81), it contained 140. The virgate also varied. At Sandon

it consisted of 60 acres * (I. 145). at Wicham of 24 (I. 97), at Nastok of 
20 (p. 81). and at Drayton of 16 (p. 99). The acre consisted of 160 
square perches, the perch being- 16 J feet. There was. also a variation in 
the length of the perch. The " parva.p>ertioa"" .is' mentioned at p. 80, 
and is probably the perch cf 16 feet : and ' at p. 92 we find a perch of 
24 feet. It also consisted of 2 J or 20 feet : the latter perch being used in 
the measure of the quarentena. or fourth of an acre. See Spelman and Du 
Cange. 

Dcfendlt se versus Begem pro decern Hidis. — '• Satisfies the royal demand 
for bidage. bv p^vintr for ten bides." The chroniclers relate several in- 
stances of hidage taken by the Anglo-Norman Kings ; there is, however, 
reason to believe that it vras an annual, as well as an occasional ta\, and 
that it was the excessive amount cf the demand, or the cause of it, 
wbich drew the attention of the chroniclers to these particular exer- 
cises of the royal prerogative. In the Articles of Inquisition of 1181 
(see p. 112), the question, "Pro quot hidis unaquaeque villa se de- 
feiideret tempore Regis Henrici. tempore W'll'i Decani, versus regem," is 
followed immediately by this, " Quid tunc fiscalibus coramodis appenden- 
tur per mnium vicecomiti .s. vel hundredi praeposito.'' In 1222 the manor 
of Barling (see p. 64) being rated at two hides and an half, paid for 
hidage annually thirtv-one pence to the bailiff of the hundred of Rislee, 
two pence halfpenny of which was due for 20 acres of the demesne. It 
appears from the Rotuli Hundredorum of 39 Hen. III. and the earlier years 
of Edw. I., that hidage was an annual payment, but whether universally 
paid by everv manor is uncertain. In the county of Cambridge the 
Vicecoraites were accustomed to repair the bridge at Cambridge by levying 
" pontage'" or " brigbote " on every bide of land, which was liable to geld.

Essarta. — Lands reclaimed from the Forest or Common. The etymology 
of the word is doubtful. It appears from the " Extenta r\Ianeriorum "

inrolmeni of the Justices in Eyre of the 5 and 20 Ed. I. The right of the 
Canons c^f St. Paul's to assart land at Chingcford and at Heybridge had 
been caHed in question; but judgment was given in their favour upon the 
procuction of a charter of King John, exerrjpting the Chapter from ail pleas 
of offtnce committed by them, in these lauds and woods, against tlie forest 
laws. 

Pi o?ter duas Prehendas. — The prebends here mentioned are those of 
Cadington Major and Cadington Minor, held by two of the Canons of 
St. Paul's. In the Domesday of the county of Bedford (vol. i. f. 211 j the 
Manor cf Cadendon. in that county, belonging to St Paul's, is described as 
contalniii? five hides. In the time of the Confessor it was held by Leuuinus 
cilt. (ib. fol. 36), together with the Henfordihire manors of Cadindon and 
Caneswcrde, " de rege," and it appears to have been given, together with 
them, to St. Paul's by the Conqueror.* The word " Praebenda,'" or " Pre- 
benda," means anvthing given for support and maintenance. All the tliirty 
Canons of St. Paul's have borne the title of Prebendaries, and been distin- 
cruished by the names of the manors or lands allotted to them for their 
prebend, from as early a period as the beginning of the twelfth century. 
But the prebendal system was elsewhere probably of a still earlier date. 
In the account of the lands belonging to the canons of St. Martin's, 
Dover, in the Exchequer Domesday, (vol. i. f. 1 b.) it is stated, with refer- 
ence to ruentv-seven solins, held by that body in the last of Estrede, and 
other places, that in the time of the Confessor the " prebendfe " had been 
" communes," and that they had been divided amongst the individual mem- 
bers bv the Bishop of Bayeux. Other lands, however, belonging to the 
same body had been held, in the time of the Confessor, in separate pre- 
bends, and had descended from father to son, the Abbot of St. Augustine's 
holding also lands belonging to that body " in praebenda," which had been 
similarlv held by his predecessor.

not wholly the property of the lord. Such woods are mentioned at Kens- 
worth fp. 7), at Ardley (p. 21), and at Keybridge (p. 52). From the 
" Extenta Maneriorum"' we learn the dc£ni;;on of this kind of wood to be 
" Boscus ^/-//i.^fri/.v. ubi alii communicant." At Nastok (L fol. 77 b) the 
Pas-.ura forinsecj is described as " Communis ad Paroehinn;.'' 

Vi'uinG'j-iur.i. — This word has several m.eanings. It here denotes the 
tillage end cartage required for the cultivation of the land. At p. 28, 
line 9, -'Vrainagium vetus," in tlie sense of land anciently ])loughed, is 
opposed to •' Novum essartum," laud nev.ly broken up. In Magna Charta 
it has a two-fold sense, that of tillage, as in the phrase "tempus tvainagii," 
and also of the imphmerds for the work, as in the phrases "Terra instaurata

Araiura de lage erthe. — In Book I. 115, IIG. this ^Tord Lage erthe 
is written "la verthe "' and '-laverthe." Work of a similar characier was 
c-nlled '■ benerthe " and '• gavelerthe " or " gave herthe.'" (I. 99 b.) (See 
AVilkius and Du Cange.) The distinction between " laverthe " and 
" benerthe " consisted in the labour of ploughing being performed either 
with food from the lord, or without it. In th.e inquisition of Kens- 
worth (I. 120) we read. '• Debet arare ter in anno siiu ciho ccmini, 
OV.X yocu.t\ir ' 1 avert lie,' et semel in anno ad cihiim domini; qua? vocatur 
' henerUie.' ' 

VirL'ata qiur non overo.t. — Services of various kinds were due to the 
lord, as from each Virgate or Hide, the occupiers of the land performing 
the services pro rata. Exemption from one service was couipensated by the 
obligation to perform another, as in the case here noted, the Virgate. which 
was free from " average." made malt instead.

In some cases (see pnge 50) the new tenant had purchased the J'ormer

Reginaldus PriTpufiitv^. — The pra'jwsifus was foreman of the operarii, 
or customarv tenants, and the assistant of the Bailivus. Fleta (II. c. 76) 
states that this oflBcer was elected bv the Villata. Accordingly we read 
(I. iOG), that at Belcbamp all the Custumarii elected the Praepositus, and 
were responsible for his good conduct, and that if he fell into arrear with 
respect to payment, and his own goods were not sufficient to make good 
the amount, the Custumarii were to supply the deficiency. At Cadendon 
the Praepositus served " ad cibum domini," and during his tenure of the 
office was exempt from all other services (I. 1 16.)

Year, but depended upon the seison. The Precaria? Caruc^rum, for

'■cum corvijia," at which beer was allowed. In the itiquisition cf Ardley 
(I. ] 15) we find a "Precaria ad cervisiam," and also a ''Precaria ad aquam." 
At the former, the allowance fur two men was, at the first meal, porridge 
of beans or peas, and two loaves, one of them, white and suiScient for two 
meals, the other, a small loaf de mixtilioije (raaslin bread, cf wheat or barley 
mixed with rye), together with a piece of meat, and beer for one meal. At

In the "Precaria ad aquam'' tlie allowance was two great loaves, of tne size 
thirty-two to a quarter, porridge as before, six herrings, or.e piece of some 
other fish, and water. At Belchamp (L 101 j llie tenant, who. had provided 
two men to labour, and who had two meals a-day, went to supper at the 
court, and was served with three dishes "honeste," as a mark of distinction. 
At Norton (I. 150), in the fourth Precaria of the season, tl;e tenants had 
three meals during the day, and their wives joined them at supper. In the 
Rotuli Hundredorura these Precaria? are very frequently described.

panvagium — the fee for permission to feed swine in the woods. In a 
document cf the date of iSoO, quoted by Ducange from Speiman, the 
word is written Grasanec, the root of which is probably the Anglo-Saxon 
gsers, or grass. In the R.S. P. (Laws of England, vol. i. p. AZ'2^. mention 
is made of a tejip-fpyn, " porcus herbagii," as given yearly by the Ge- 
neate, or "\'illanus to his Lord. In the Inquisition of Bernes (I. 131b), 
we find the word Garsavese expressing the annual payment given for pannage 
of pigs; and also (I. 132b) the remarkable term, "avesabit porcos." It is 
doubtful whether the meaning of the word Garsavese is to be limited to 
the pannage of swine. At p. 51 we have an account of the pavments due 
at VValetone for the pasture of sheep, ammolia. horses, and pis-s. all of 
which appear to be included under *' Garsavese,"' the concluding words being 
" similiter de equis et dc singulis porcis l.d. pro Garsavese.'" At Kadendon . 



TO THE ST. Paul's DOMESDAY, A.D.S^ijj'f C F '■-' "^ jxlx 

in 1279 (I. 119 b) there were eight tenants, each of them paving 2\(I. for 
Garsavese, i.e. half the ?um here mentioned as payable from each "\'irgale, 
the land having been subdivided. 

Lungahh. — It is remarkable tliat the payments of Langahle. Pannage, 
and Garsavese are here mentioned together, as in the K. S. P. laiidgavul 
and jejif-fi'vn follow each other. I.andgable appears to liave been a very 
ancient payment. It is defined in Spelman's Glossary to be a tribute or 
pra?dial rent of lo'. for every house. In the manors of St Paul's it 
vras a payment from each Virgate. At Cadendon it was pavable at the 
feast of St. Martin (I. 119), and amounted to l^d. per virgate. At 
Beauchamp it amounted to twice that sum. Ibd. (p. 33). At He^ bridge 
each virgate appears to have paid 2\d. (page 56). It was due at Michael- 
mas, and the whole sum iu 1279 amounted to 2.^. Qd. (I. S9). At Nastok 
the sum which the nativi holding virgates paid as Landgable was bd. 
and there were eight such virgates (I. 76). In the R.S. P. the non- 
payment of Landgavol is mentioned, as distinguishing the Cotsetle from 
the Geneate or A'illanus. (Laws of England, i. p. 432.) 

Pannagiitrn. — The word means either the right of feeding pigs or other 
animals in the lord's woods, or tlie money paid for the exercise of it, 
Accordi'.ig to Sjielman. " paun;;gium '' would be the correct form of the 
word, paujis being the nanje for the iiroduce of wood, such as acorns^ 
beech, or mast, &:c., but the root is roost probably the Latin Pastus. In 
the '• K. S. P." the word is written '-Pastinagiura," and in French docu- 
ments it takes the same form. At Belchamp (I. 106), Pannage was thus 
paid : '• Omnes porci magni ct parvi. qui pascnnlur iu campis et boscis 
comini. ducuntur die S'cti Martini Epi^copi ad aulam, et pannasxium dant 
(prseter sues et porcellos) ct taxantr.r per duos liberos homines ct duos 
custumarios, prater sues et porctllos lactantes."' 

li'oodsi/ver. — A payment in lieu of the service of carrving wood. At 
Xastok (p. 82), some of the tenants carried a cart-load from the wood to 
the court at Christmas. At Chingford (p. 99), the wood was not only 
carried, but hewn for fuel, and put up '• super trabos."' probablv the beams 
of the hall. At Sutton (p. 94), the tenant brought four cart-loads from 
the wood to the court " sine cibo."' 

Foddercorn. — A payment of oats in kind. This j^avment was made at 
Martinmas, and consisted of a half-qur^rter of oats (I. 116). At Horlock 



IxX NOTES AND ILLUSTRATJOXS 

it was paid (p. 47) in the month of March. At Xastok (p. 83) on 
Christmas Eve. Oats \vere also paid as rent by the Tenacrc lioldcrs at 
Sandun (p. 17)- Fudderconi occurs frequenlly in Rot. Hurid. p. 602, G38, 
642. &c. and as payable at Martinmas. 

Puijjre.<tura. — Anv en^Tcachnient. such as inclosure of v,asto on the side 
of the rmg"£ hig-hwav, erection of buildings, stopping watercourses, roads, 
or pathways, inclosure of common or forest lands, breaking up woodlands, 
enlarging parks, k.c. 

Semp.n frumenli ad unam rodam. — The quantity of seed wheat paid by 
these tenants in 1279 was two bushels, and the land sown with it eight 
half-roods or one acre. 

Page 7. IT. nummatv:'.: terra:. — The purprestura is here described as 
six-penny-worth of land. There is reason to believe tlia: \ery small quan- 
tities of land were thus valued. It was a purprestura or encroachment 
which is here mentioned ; and in a charter of Henry II. in Oliver's Monas- 
ticon Disecesis Exon. p. 24. half an acre is described as •• viginti nummatas 
terras." (See Spelman and Du Cange, Kuramata.) 

Cessit in dies regis. — The meaning of the phrase is uncertain ; but 
probably it means simply, that he yielded to the King of Terrors and died, 
after which the half-virgate which he held was divided between the two 
tenants next mentioned, and the Purprestura by a third, for xii. instead of 
vi. pence. 

Pase 8. Consuetudine:. ViUata. — Under this term are included all the 
services and pavnaents due to the lord from the tenants of all ranks : but in 
connection with Wainagium. it must be limited to the services performed 
by the Carucs or Teams of the tenants. 

Page 9. Per Jinent. — The i&vm Jinis here used, is defined by Spelman 
(Gloss. 229) to be the monev agreed to be paid for entering upon a farm, 
either by the native tenant to his lord, or by the lessee to the lessor ; the 
payment was anciently caVed " gersuma." At p. \'2. certain essart lands 
are described as granted to the tenants, upon the pa^Tnent of half a mark 
to the Dean and Chapter. 

Pao-e 10. Ecchsia de Kensicorth. — The virgate of land here mentioned 
was an endowment by the Chapter. At page 14 7 we read " Habet haec 
ecclesia (Kensworth) unam virgatam terra? liberara ab omni s?eculari 
officio."

being in the demesne, and probably not occupied by the tenants, an agree-

reduction of rent here spoken of under the term '• excidunt duos denarios."

which, as we learn from Eracton, lib. 5, c. 2, 3, was first to be tried in 
the Court of the Lord of the Manor, and then by default was removable to 
the County Court. See also Blackstone.. iii. 10, and Appendix. 

Page 17. Porture xxv. suvnnas. — In ihe account of this service in 
I. 137 b.; the word ateragia is used, and each averagium is said to consist 
of seven bushels of wheat or barley ; or ten bushels and a-half of oats, 
according to the measure of St. PauVs. 

Page 17. Sirica — Hoppa. — It is to be observed that the holders of ten 
acres are here mentioned as paying a Strike of oats, and the holders of five 
acres a Hoppa. and hence it would appear that the "strike "was the double 
of the "hoppa." The "strike" is said to be a bushel (see Johnson's 
Dictionary), but since it is found that in 1279 (I. 142) the ten-acre men 
of this Manor paid two bushels of oats, and the five-acre men one, we 
thence conclude thnt the " strike" at Sandon was two bushels.

Paae 21. Boscus vestitus. — Vestura is defined in Du Cange " Fructus

the absence of all produce either from underwood or pannage is implied.

indicaie an osier bed, or plantation of pliable wood. 

Page 2S. Borland. — The " Forland " and the '' Inland " of a manor 
would seem to bear the same relation to each other as the " Boscus 
Forinsecus."" and '' Boscus Intrinsecus. The " Inland'" and "Utland" are 
described bv Lambard as the Demesne of the lord, and the Land of the 
tenants. (Spelman ) It is, however, probable that both the Inland of the 
demesne, and the Forland or Utland of the tenants, differed as to tenure, 
or to situation, from the ordinary demesne and tenants' lands. The "Inlands," 
which were relet upon an increased rent at Belchamp, in 1240 (see pages 
118-121), are described as " terrae de dominico, quas vocaut Inlandes."

account there gnven (I. 10;) of the quarititv of food which was due by 
custom to the tenants at the precaria?, it would appear that, since the lord 
lost little by iheir non-attendance, forfeiture was not incurred.

Waltham being charged with having erected a gallows, (not having had one in 
his Manor of Alrichseye (Arlesy, in the county of Bedford), prior to the 
last circuit of the Justices in Eyre.) replied; that it was true, that robbers had 
been very often condemned in his court and hanged on the gallows of his 
neighbours, who lent them to him ; but after the last circuit it happened, that 
one Theobald, a robber, was taken " cum manu opere" (with ti)e goods in 
his possession) at the suit of a certain person, and condemned in his court; 
and that under the cover of the Royal Charter, which allowed him " In- 
fangenethef," be then first erected a gallows after the last circuit, as it was 
lawful for him to do; and further, that robbers, who had been condemned 
by the Justices in Eyre, or their deputies, had frequently been delivered to 
him to be executed. In a similar proceeding against the Bishop and 
Canons of St. Paul's, it was pleaded (p. 476j that the Canons of St. Paul's 
possessed the right of Infangenethef, with other privileges, in all their 
manors in the county of Middlesex, but that they had no gallows, except 
in Finsbury ; and that, when any of the men of their Mils were taken, 
their twenty-two hides were convened to pass the judgment upon him, " ad

this cliaracter was also held bv tenants of the St. Paul's manors Wicham 
and Chintrford, in 1279, though no mention is made of them in 1222. 
At Wicham Molloud was distinguished from Customary land with respect to 
the right of dower, " The widow who held Moliond was entitled to have the 
moietv of such land for dower as long as she remained a widow, and the 
whole of the custoraars- land, but marrving she lost the whole of it. If 
Customary land descended to daughters the eldest took the whole, but 
Moliond was divided." (I. lOn.) 

At Chingford there were several tenants " nativi " holding various 
quantities of land described as ''terra de moliond per successionem cum 
pertinentiis :" we roee: also with this description "terra de werklond 
cum pertinentiis per successionem;" and also "terra cum pertinentiis de 
moliond et werklond per successionem." There were eighteen such tenants 
of Moliond. Moliond and Werklond were, however, different. Tlie services 
of the tenants of Moliond are the same as those due from the Custumarii ; 
but the payment on admission differed at Chingford ; the Operarius paid to 
the lord a ploughshare; of tenants of other classes it is said " Ingredientes 
Moliond duplicabuut redditum." (I. 65.) 

Page 41. Hidarii de Torph. — The reader will remark that of nine and 
a half hides held by the Hidarii, eight are described as divided amongst 
several tenants. (See the Observations on this Tenancy, Introduction, 
p. XXV.) In 1279 the number of hides so divided was nine. The services 
due from these tenants, as described in the following pages 42, 43, are 
enumerated in I. 95, and the value of them, as due from each hide, when 
commuted, is estimated at eighteen shillings and eleven pence. The holders 
of the nine hides possessed also amongst them seventy-two messuages or 
dwelling-houses, and for each messuage some occasional services were due, 
in addition to those due for the land in the hide.

equivalent to cihurn. The service here mentioned was that of threshing 
corn enough for the food of a team (^coi-uca) in winter and spring. Dig- 
nerium is explained bv Du Cange to be Pastus, Prandium, and derived from 
the French '• Disner." It is evidently an ancient form of our present 
word " dinner." Hot. Hund. Oxon, y. 750. •• Unnm pancm ad dignerium

When therefore the vrord " susenna '' is joined to pasture; it mav mean

tenure, as being that of carrying ••loads." and of which a particular account

mentioned were payahlc to the Lord, so also was the Wardpennv. (Note, 
p. 34, Viss'iluhil circa cm-iam.^ It is, however, to be observed that 
Wardpennv was one of the pnvmcnts due to the Crown and pavable at the 
Countv Court (see page 58) : but whether as a commutation for anv, or 
what kind of guard, we are not Informed. At page 64 we read, that the 
IManor of Barling paid for its two hides and a half thirteen pence for Ward- 
penny, towards which the Demesne lands contributed two pence. The names 
of the tenants from whom the Wardpennv was due are given at p. 68. 

57. Ad stipularn. — The service of collecting straw for thatching, as in 
p. 56, "ad grangias cooperiendas." 

Decern acrce pro ferramentis carvcaruvi faciendls. — This tenement 
was in 1279 held bv Johannes " Faber," or Smith. In I. 86 b. this service 
is more fully described. The Smith paid no rent, but he made all the iron- 
work of the ploughs, shod four plough-horses (affros de caruca) and one 
cart-horse, the Lord providing iron and steel (asserrum) for the ploughs, 
and iron and nails for the horseshoes. 

Page 58. Cum sex hidis trium solandaruni. — From the description 
given (p. 93) of the solanda of Chiswick " quae per se continet duas hidas," 
we infer, that the three Solaudas here mentioned, contained each of them two 
hides also. and. as has been stated in the Introduction (p. xiv.), of less 
dimension than the ordinary hide. It was there conjectured, that the 
Solanda might represent the Kentish solimus of 180 acres, and be composed 
of two hides of \'0 acres each. The word "Solanda"" in the Inquisitions 
of Tillingham and of Dravton in 1181 (pages 142, 145). and in that of 
Drayton in 1279 (I. 128). is written " .Scolanda " and " Scholanda.'" At 
Dravton in the accoimt of John Derman's tenement, who was said to hold 
forty-three and a half acres " terrye arabilis,'" and three acres and a half 
"de la Scoland," "ploughed land." would seem to be opposed to " Scoland." 



TO THE ST. Paul's do^iesday, a.d. 1222. Ixxix 

It is liowever there particularly stated, that the Scholaud contained one 
hide of four virgates or G4 acres; the virgate of Drayton containing only 
16 acres; and thus the smallness of this hide of Scholanda at Drayton 
confirms the conjecture, that hides in Solanda or Scholanda were generally 
less than the ordinarv bide.

Chapter had a renewed grant of this Manor from the Crown, which exempted 
them from suit at the county and hundred court, from payment of Ward- 
pennv, Hundredpenny, Tithingpenry, and view of Francplego. and confirmed 
to them Saca et Soca. Sec. (I. 163.)

payable bv ih.e manor to the bailifi' of the hundred of Rt'.lee), v.as borne bv 
those tenants in particular, v, ho held " terras operarias," in most instances, 
of half a virgate ; and that the payment was chargeable upon the land, and 
not upon the persons, the pavment being continued though the lands by 
escheat became attached to the demesne. A similar list is found at p. 85 of 
eight persons of the m.anor of Xastok. who paid 2c?. each towards the IGd. 
which was due to tlie court of the hundred at Hocktide. Of these eight 
persons four were Libere TenenteS; other three Nativi. the Libere Tenentes 
probably paying the "NVardpenijy, as holding lands formerly belonging 
to persons of the latter cla-s. In tlie Survey of Sutton in IL'22 there 
is no similar enumeration, 'ilthough Wardpenny is mentioned as paid 
by four of the tenants holding half virgates. But the Survey of 1279 
(I. 28) contains the names cf tv-, elve persons who paid '2d. each as Ward- 
pennv, together with notice of a Wardpennv of a different character, re- 
sembling that paid to the Bercarius at Bcrnes. p. 105. for the custody of 
sheep in the common pasture. " Quilibet habens averia super terruras

pro summonitionibus de denariis qui vocantur Wardpenny." In the Survey 
of Cbiugford of \'2'22 no distinct mention is made of Wardpennv. but in the 
Survey of 12"9 (I. Go), which recites a " Finalis concordia"' made between 
the Abbot cf Waltham and the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's, 4 Hen. 111. 
with respect to the Services due to the Half-hundred of the Abbot from the 
Tenants of the Manor of Cbingford, some statements are made, which 
illustrate the duty of " Ward " as rendered at the court of the Hundred, as 
well as the pavment of Wardpenny within the Manor. That document 
states, that it was anciently the custom, that all the Tenants of the Manor, 
whether Liberi or Villani. should attend unsummoned three lagebundreds 
in the vear, from the Tuesdav next after the Feast of St. .^lichael for 
fifteen davs, from the Tuesdav after the Epiphanv for fifteen days, and 
also from Hobday, on which latter dav the tenants were bound '• pra?sen-

service was due at the Hundred Court. But when the View of Francplege

I. 66, Nvhere eight tenants of this class are mentioned, that the whole land 
reaped bv them was four acres, t^^o of wheat and two of oats. Thev also 
furnished one of the four men who with the Pr.'ppositus attended at the

the Statutum de Pi-^tovibus. Statutes of the Realm, vol. i. p. 203. 
'• The toll of a niill shall be taken according to the custom of the 
land, and accordincr to the strength of the water-course, either to the 
twentieth or four-and -twentieth corn. And the measure whereby the 
loll must be taken shall be agreeable to the King's measure, and toll 
shall be taken by the rase, and not by the heap or cantel. And in case 
that the firmarii find the millers their necessaries, they shall take nothing 
besides their due toll ; and if they do otherwise they shall be grievously 
punished."

half bushels (T. 71.) This pavmcnt was sometimes tenned Foddercorn.

Page 80. Parva Periica. The ordinary perch appears to have been 
16 n, and the greater perch 24 (see page 92). The lesser perch was 
probably that of ten or of twelve feet. (See Du Cange.) 

Page 81. Havedsoi. — Head money, otherwise termed Chevagium. At 
page 83 a particular account is given of this payment. Single persons 
paid a pennv. T^Iarried persons two pence. It was paid at Whitsuntide. 
These persons were Nativi. But the pavment gave them the privilege of 
going out of the ]Manor, " habent exitum "' (see Introduction, p. xxiv), and 
thcv had the right of wood and water on the demesne. 

Fulcuhit dimidiam acrarn et veriit ad Pedemad. — Bedmath is the 
service of Haymaking. It is fully described in I. 70, where the service of 
mowing the halfacre here mentioned has the distinguishing name, Bed- 
halfaker. Twenty-six mowers and eight haymakers were entitled for this 
service to the bread of four bushels of wheat, a live sheep, a cheese of the 
value of 5c/.. and a cheesemold, first filled with salt, and afterwards with 
oatmeal.

rnunia pastura?," and of the law respecting it, occupies three chapters of the 
fourth book of Bracion. The right of comraunia varied, however, so much, 
and was souietirces so limited, that it is possible, the privilege which the 
Villata of Nastock enjoved, might only be that of grazing cattle, without 
including the right of panLage. or the full enjoyment of the " pessona.'" 

Inquisitio facta an?io iecundo post translat'ionem Beati Thovice. — The 
insertion of this date is remarkable. The translation of the remains of 
Saint Thomas of Canterbury took place on the 7th Julv. 1220. We arc not 
informed as to the time of the year when this inquisition was begun ; but the 
visit of the Dean and the Treasurer to Cbingford must have taken place 
prior to 7 Julv. 1222. 

Per Rohpvtum Decanvm, k.c. — Robert de Watford was Dean from the 
year 1218 to 122S. Henry the Chancellor was Henry de Coriihill ; he 
became Chancellor in 1217, and Dean in 1254. Peter the Treasurer here 
mentioned as the " firmarlus " was Peter de Saucta Maria : he was Pre- 
bendary of Isledon. 

De Carmos. Moellos ei Jantes et JVdeTicIit. — Are these the names of 
particular woods or of materials ? Wdericht seems to be some special right 
of wood, apparentlv different from the right of supply of wood for the carts. 
Page 86. Duo Lagehundred. — The law courts of the hundred. The 
law-day is mentioned in Siatut. 1 Edw. IV. c. 2. In tlie Forest Laws of 
Cnut, c. ix. we read, " Sint omnes quieti ab omnibus procurationibus, sum-

Page 90. Duo fa de arena. — Two Fardings or Quarters. 
Aversilver. — Money in lieu of carriage or avera2"e. 

Qudvta jjdfs 'j/Iuinhi. — The plurabus is a leaden fat belonging to the 
brewery, frequently mentioned in the inventories of the manors, pp. 121, 
132, 137, 146, and in some cases as "plumbus super furnacem." The text, 
as it stands, is defective in meaning; but the inquisition of 1279 justifies 
the conjecture, that the service here mentioned is that of filling one-fourth 
of the boiler or " plurabus super furnacem," for the purpose of a bath ; for 
we there read (I. 6(.'. 63.) of four tenants of this manor, who were bound 
" Balinare dominum.. et aquam portare, et calefacere ad idem." 

Page 92. Duot firhnis phnas. — The "plena firma" is distingiiislicd from 
the " brevis firma'' which is mentioned at p. 122 a^ pavable in 11.30 from 
the manor of Wicharn : but the relative 'prujiortioii; of the tv,o firnue arc not 



Ixxxiv XOTr> AXD ILLrsTRATlOXS 

discoverable. The nuniLer of firmas pavable from each manor varied ar- 
cording to its extent. (See Introduction, p. xxxix.) In later times each 
firjna contained 16 quarters of wheat; 16 quarters of oats, and three quarters 
of barley. 

Page 96. Joh'nincs Fahcr. — In 1279 AVal:er Fabcr held this tenement, 
and pcnormed this service: '' Dat unum hanmm ferreum de redditn ad 
carncni in coquina erigendam, die quo dominus habet magnama Alebedrip 
(probably the time of brewing, when the tenants supplied utensils), et 
habebit jentaculum suum." (I. 27.) 

Page 103. Bernci. — Tliis manor is described in the Exchequer Domes- 
day as forming part of the Archiepiscopal manor of Mortalage, and held of 
the Archbishop bv the Canons of St. Paul's. The pr;pdial services due 
from them of ploughing a certain quantitv of the Archbishop's land "ad 
cibum in curia archiepiscoj-i,'' and of attending the " precaria^ " of the 
Archbishop, illustrate the position, that the performance of prsedial services 
does not imply degradation in condition. 

Quorum tamen num um recepit. — The reading is uncertain. Nvnnnuin 
would mean monev received for defects, but nurneriim appears preferable 
as denoting the enumeration of the buildings in the lease granted to the 
firmarius. In the lease granted to Gerard de Cusance in 1317 (I. 169) 
there is a clause respecting improvements and dilapidations, which illustrates 
the allusion here made to the " mclioratio '' and " deterioratio " of the 
buildings, '• Et quicquid meliorationis inventum fuerit tunc ibidem in 
domibus vel utensilibus prjedictis per cum receptis liberura et quietum 
eisdem decano et capitulo remanebit, ita tameu quod, si domes aliquas 
inutiles vel ruinosas destruxerit, vel onerosas aut male dispositas in melius 
mutaverit alibi transferendo vel competentius disponendo. debita recom- 
pensatio sibi fiat de necessariis et utilibus meliorationibus per eum. ut 
prcemittitur, factis cum aliis inutilibus vel ruinosis per eum destructis, et vel 
male dispositis alibi translatis, seu utilius et melius ordinatis, dum tamen 
sufficientia aysiamenta domorum necessariarum et utihum diraittantur." 

Page lu5. Ponunt fuldoin t^naia. — The folding from Hokdav to the 
first of August on the demesne, and paying for the cliarge of the stock so 
folded, was an advantage to the lord, both as respects the manuring of the 
demesne and providing the wages of his shepherd. 

Co/icmu/iis ]j(j.itura. — This right of feeding is distinct from that of 



TO THE ST. Paul's domesday, a.d, 1222. Ixxsv 

folding just mentioned, which wa^ limited to the demesne land? between 
Hokday and the first of August. It was that denominated pasture of 
common, and was enjoyed from Easter to Michaelmas ; nor was the lord 
bound to provide anj- shepherd for the sheep thus depastured. 

Page 107. Inrotuhiiio, &c. — These extracts from the enrolments of the 
-proceedings of the Justices in Eyre of the 5 and 20 Ed. I. 1277 and 1292, 
form the la'^t page (but in a much later hand) of the Domesday of 1222.

of a Purprestura at Chingford held by one Picot who paid to the Treasurer 
of St. Paul's three days' work and three halfpence. (Rot. Hundred, vol. 
I. p. inc.) From the Placita de Quo V>'arrauto (p. 282) it appears that 
in the 6 Edv,-. I., the year follovring this circuit or iter of Roger de 
Clifford, the Bishop of London and the Chapter defended their rights on 
this manor by producing their charters, and that they were dismissed " sine 
die," their claim being allowed. 

Hehrugire, Chingefuvd. — The Chapter appear to have been charged 
with a Purprestura committed in the time of SimiOn de Stanbrugg. The 
Charter of King John which had been produced at Chingford (6 Edw. II. ) 
was produced again, and the rights of the Chapter both at Chingford and 
Hevbridee allowed. 



NOTES AND ILLUSTRATIONS 

OF THE TRAGMENT OF 

THE DOMESDAY OF RADULPHUS DE DICETO IN llSl. 

This MS. for the trauscription of which the Editor is indebted to the 
Rev. H. O. Cox, Ui:idcr-Librarian of the Bodleian, contains onl\' two leaves, 
written in double columns, of the folio size, the handwriting- and the page 
beinsr of the same character but rather larger than that in the Domesdav 
of ]-2'22. Thev are part of a book which originaliv contained, as is shown 
bv the Capitula (p. 110). not only the Inquisition of 1181, but many 
other particulars relative to the Cathedral and its possessions. 

Page 109. An7}us ah Incarnuiionc, fyc. — The date of the Inquisition, 
as commencing Jan. 8, 1181, and svnchronizing with the 21 of Alex- 
ander III. and the 27 of Henry II. accords with the Chronological Tables 
of Sir H. Nicolas. The King Henry here mentioned, as the king's son, 
was the eldest son of Henry II. who was crowned king during his father's 
lifetime, on the l4lh June, 117(», being t]}en fifteen years of age. He 

died at Castle Martel, in Turenne, in 1182 ; his father died in 1 !S9, He 
was crowned a second time at ^Vinchester after his m.arriage vrith Mar- 
garet, the only daughter of Louis VII. King of France ; and, as he was 
twice crowned, he was also twice buried, first at Mans, and afterwards at 

Rouen. Sandford, Geneal. Hist. j-. 67.

Ih'cardus Ixuffus. — A Canon and Prebendary of Twj-ford. who, in the 
time of Hugo de Marini the Dean, becauje the Firmarius of Btlchamp 
(See the Lease, p. 13S). His surname Ruffus distinguishes him from 
Richard the Archdeacon, who had also held the lease of that manor, but 
who was not Archdeacon of Essex later than 1 16S. Newcourt, in his 
Repertorium, has assigned the surname of Ruffus to the Archdeacon, but, 
as it appears, incorrectly'. It is remarkable that among the lists of tenants 
of the manor of Belchamp in 1222, the name of Matilda occurs as " relicta 
Ricardi Ruffi,"' and as holding an acre of land. 

Odo de Dammarilno. — This person does not appear to have been a 
canon. The family, of which he was a member, was settled at Norton? 
the church of which was given in the reign of Ric. I. by Bartholomew de 
DaramartinO; the patron, to the nuns of St. Leonard's at Bromley. 

Johannes de Marigni. — Possibly a relation of Hugo de Marini, the 
predecessor of Radulphus de Diceto in the deanery. 

Nicholas Londoniensis Archidiaconus. — In the List of the Prebendaries 
of Oxgate, this Nicholas is mentioned as being the son of Nicholas Croce- 
mannus, the former prebendary. 

Page 112. Incjuisitlo facta infra viginti dies duos. — This progress began 
in the winter in the month of January. That in 1222 appears to have 
taken place at Midsummer. In 1279 the progress began on the 19th Sept. 
at Nastock, and ended at Chiswick on the 24ih Oct. ; more places were then 
visited, and the whole time occupied thirty-six days instead of twenty-two. 

Page 113. Reginaldus pra-pnsitus. — Mentioned in 1222 as having been 
a tenant of this manor. See page 7, and note there. 

Page 114. Ric. urcharius — Asclietillus — Stonhardas. — Among the 
jurors in 1222 we find Thomas Archer, Ankeiillus and Stonhardus. The 
two latter were probably the persons who had served forty years before. 

Rohertus persona tenet. — The lands of this Robert Persona were held 
(the stanwlnesland excepted) in 1222 by Ricardus de Petewineshale ; and 
subsequently bv Nicholas de Petewineshale; and in 1279 by Nicholas his 
son. In 1240, another member of the family, William de Petewinesball, 
held a messuage formerly held by Richard. It is probable that Robertas 
Persona was the ancestor of the family. We learn from I. 101, that, prior to 
1279, Nicholas, the son of Nicholas, had sold all his land but seven or 
eight acres, one Martinus de Suthmere being both the purchaser of the

fourscore acres T,-hicb belonged to Nicholas, and also the tenant of twcnfy- 
four acies. for -^bich he rendered service to the manor for himself and his 
tenants ; the saire Martinus having fourteen tenants rendering him service, 
\\hilst he himself rendered service for a small portion to another tenant, 
Robert Lovekvn. v.ho had tenants under him, himself also rendering service 
to the manor. Such was the intricacv attendant upon manorial subinfeuda- 
tion, being the counterpart upon a smaller scale of the intricacy of the 
relations; in which kings aud princes and nobles stood to each other, as 
possessors of lards, either in the same or in different countries, under the 
svstem of feudalitv. vrhich scarcely recognised the possession of land a])art 
from fealrv. or the performance of some kind of personal ser\ice.

OBSEliVATIOXS OS THE INCREASED RENTAL OF LANDS 
IN BELCHAMP. a.d. 1^40. pp 118— 12L 

This document, which exhibits an increase made in the rent parable bv 
the Tenants of certain lands of the demesne termed "inlands'* to the amount 
of one-lialf of the former rent,, illustrates the statement in the Introduction 
(p. viii.), that increase of rent v,-a? to be obtained ])v the lords of manors 
only for newly inclosed lands, or for lands belonging to the demesne. 

These tenants had held their lands " sine auctoritate capituli," that is. at 
the will of the firmariu-. and it is to be remarked, that the proposal to increase 
the rent came from the tenants themselves. '• infrascripti tenentes augmentave- 
runt rcddiiura assisnm." on the condition that they should hold under the 
chapter, " ut auctoritas capituli interveniret." It is probable, that thus 
holding of the chapter, they acquired a permanent and hereditary right in 
the land : the survey of Runwe'l in 1222 (pp. 70, 71) containing a record 
of a similar increase in the rent of lands in the demesne, with the addition 
" de crcmento per capitulura, ut sit perpetuum." 

The number of the tenants in this document is 31. In ten instances 
either the tenants or their fann''.v mav be identified in the survey of 1222, 
viz. Henr' Pictor, Rogerus fil' Rob'. Joliaunes Pelliparius, Henr' dux, 
Auicia relicta Giliberti suori=, V\";il" de Petewinshale, LaiTjbertus faber, 
Rob'tus Icffrich. et Will's Mot. cari>^ntarius A similar identification might 
be made from the survey of 1279, as compared with this list in 1240. 
"With respect to the tenants of the demesne of this manor of Belchamp, it. 
is remarkable, that the information respecting them in the documents of St. 
Paul's relates to four periods, the rears 1181, 1222. 1240, 1279. Hugo 
de St. Edmund, here mentioned as Gustos Manerii, was Prebendorv of

NOTES AXD ILLUSTRATION'S OF THE 

LEASES OF THE >L^'nOUS OF ST. PaULS DURING THE 

TWELFTH CENTURY, pn. 1:^2—139. 

Of these documeuls. s-e\eriteen in nuaiber, sixteen relate to the manors 
of Wicham, Cadendun. Runv.ell; Adulvesnasa, I'.arling. Bernes, Kens- 
^vurtb, I'elchump, Nastock, Sandun. Chingeford, and Ardelev, and one to a 
property at Tvrvford. whic'i is recorded in the Exchequer Domesday 
(Middx.) as belonging to ti'^ Canons of St. Paid's, but wi.ieh. being held 
as a di:^;inct pri.'r;£ud. and nc: furuiing a part of the " communa." was not 
included in tt:e I'.iquisitlon c:' 122-2. 

These docunKnt^. as recorded in Booic L (tbl. 32 — 46). are transcripts 
of leases, which.; as appears from tlio lease of Bekhamp I'p. 13S K were 
executed in two parts and indented; as to their date, thev are earlier by 
several years than the Charta; of the same kind in Macox's Formulare 
Anglicanum. and they form the commencement of a series of sinjilar 
documents now remaining in the archives of St. Panl's, under whicli, 
modified frcm timie to time as fresh conditions were added lo the lease, the 
Canons who were Residentiiries held the r\Ianors of the cathedral as 
lessees to the end of the £fte-enth century. 

Page 122. Jlcfc e^:! conrentu^- inter capituhim . . . e( Hohertum Jilmm 
AiliL-ini sacerdotis. — It appears from the names of the witnesses to this 
lease that Ailvanns tiie priest had four sons, Robert, \Vi;lism, Ranulph, 
and Henry, '\^"hctber matrimony was allowed or not to priests, it is thus 
cei-tain. that in that age thev did not disown their children. Among the 
witnesses in the next lease (;;. 124) we find \\'alter the son of ih.e Bisiiop. 

Debet reddere Holer.' us : and p. 123. Debet A'divinus teddere. — The 
scribe, in niaking cut the lease to Robert the son, of a property held by 
Ailwincs the father, at pu-ars to have cojned the origirial La-e to Ailwinus 
without properly alteri::g the liSm.e. The names of the w'tnesses do not 
supply the means of detcrm.:t:;ing the date of this K'ase, w:.:ch is in sub- 
stance as old as th.at of Ailv.-ii.us the father of Robert, and is uj on the face 
of it a transfer of the lease f.-om the fat'iier to the son. 



LEASED C'F TI:F. MANGES OF ^T. TALL S. XCl 

In fesio S'cti Mart'nu. et S'cti Journiis Bopti^ta. — The firma of 
W'ichara, originallv parable at these fea^ts, continued to be pr.id on nearly 
tlie same days, and at the same intervals, at a nvjch la:er period. (See the 
Tables, p. 155-159.) 

Sexdecevt hoves ipie-irajxi,' ■prei'jlutu xxvlild. — The priceS; which are 
affixed to the different kinds of live stock in these leases, being those 
];ayab1e at the end of the lease, may be assumed to represent their ordinary 
value; oxen and horses being- worth 3.y. ; sheep 3(7 , 4 f/., and Ld.\ and 
go;its Ad.\ boars and sows from ^aI. to \-ld.\ pigs, varying according to 
tiieir size and age. from a pennv for a sucking-pij, to -if/., or/., 5>(/.,and \^d. 
We have to remark, that the lov.cst prices for horses arjd oxen are 
those fixf-'d in tins lease to llob^rt the sen of Ailvrin. the horses being 
valued at 2.v. 6o'. instead of 'of., and the oxen at 2.v. -.d.. the values being 
reduced from those in the lease b-.ld bv his father. A goat also in the 
father's lease was valued at Gf/.. b^t in the son'^ at Ad. Tlie prices of the 
stock in the lease of Sandun (^p. 13-J), granted in 1155, are interesting, as 
showing a great variety in the v^jiues of the horse= on that manor ; the careta- 
rius equus being worth 6<-. '2d . others 5.<;., As . and '2s-. There wa« a similar 
difference in the value of oxen of 5.v. Ad . o<.. and Zs. The two leases 
of Ardele (pp. 135, 136). (the first of which was granted in 1141), show 
also similar differences of value : in the forrr.cr. horses and oxen were 
valued at 3.?.; but in the latter, the horses we.'-e valujd at 3s. and 65., the 
oxen at S.v. and 2.s. 

Cinn fii. deuariis eJeinrj^in^. — This sum was received every week by 
the Almoner : it was probably applied, not to the poor generally, but to 
the '' pueri elemosinariee."" or choristers, as ther were afterv>-ards termed. 

Tripes cu)tt raaininohi. — A three-legged stool with a hand-mill. In the 
inventory of Wicham, in 1279 (I. 97), the word is '-raola manualis." 

Orreum. — The dimensions here given of the heirht from the floor to 
the principal beam {trahes); from the principal to the ridge (festurn); 
the lateral distance between the pillars {po-:tcs)\ the breadth of the 
wing or aisle (ala); and the v.hole length, with the Ihpped bays or 
lean-to at the end of the barn (nuit culucii.^ }. exhibit the entire structure 
of the barn.

he left behind the same quantity. The stock of corn and cattle thus put 
into the tenants' hands v;as equivalent to so much capital towards carrying 
on the ^ork of the farm. 

Page 123. Contra ca.'ftlla. If we accept the definition of Wardpcnr, 
a? given by Spelman, " Denarii Vicecomiti ^el aliis Castcllanit: persoluti 
ob castronim pr^psidium vel cxcubias." we mav infer that V\'ardpfcny is the 
payment here alluded to. though described in an unusual m.anner.

County (see page 123), so' here there was an engagetnent to defend the like 
right against tlie King, and speciallv ac^ainst penalties for •' sarlum," or 
breaking up forest land. The influence of Kichard the Archdeacon with 
the Chapter must have been powerful to procure him permission to name the 
Canon, who should succeed him in the lease. The mention of his purpose 
to plai:t a vineyard, dividing the wine made between himself, his successor, 
and the Chapter, and the engagement ou the part of the Chapter to confirm 
all the agreements, which the Archdeacon should make with the tenants as 
respected rents, are proofs, that the taking the lease was really a com- 
mercial speculation. 

JReddet in die annii:crsarii ejus. — A pavment for an obit on the anni-

Adulvesnasa. — This extensive manor comprised a large district in the 
hundred of Tendring and county of Essex, containing three jiarishes, 
Thorpe, Kirkby, and Walton, called at this day, with reference to the 
ancient manorial jurisdiction of the Chapter, " The Sokens." Of all the 
Manors possessed by the catliedral it lav at the greatest distance, and pro- 
bably was on that account not included in the number of the Manors 
which rendered the firmae everv week at St. Paul's. At the end of 
the twelfth century the rent of this Manor was 45/., but when Richard de 
Newport, as Prebendary of Islington, held the lease (prior to 1304) the 
annual rent paid by him for the Manor and the tithes was lO-l/. in quarterly 
payments. (L 167.)

this vras not an uunecessan- prt-tiutioc. is shown by proceedings which look 
place in 46 Men. I II. in a cans* t»rfore the Justices in Eyre, at Chelmsford, in 
which Richard de Tilhurr brourr.t an ejectment against the tlien Firniarius 
of the Manor and Church of P.Uingham. alleging xhat he was the grand- 
son and heir of Richard de Tilliugham his grandfather, who had died 
siezed in fee of the premises : the fact being, that this Richard had no 
other interest in the premises, eicept that as his father and uncle were the 
Firruarii of the Manor, and his :incle also Firmarius of the Church under 
the Chapter; he himself was h-jm in the Manor House. The Dean and 
Chapter appeared to answer in bthalf of iheir tenant, and the case went to 
a jurv : the verdict was in favc»ir of the Chapter, and Richard de Tilbury 
was " in misericordia pro falso tlamore."' (Book I. fol. 7'2h.) 

Page 1:26. JinplnuerJum. — The term " implementum " appears, from 
the expression '• ircplemeatum c-Iadi ce meliori blado," to have a particular 
reference to produce. At pare 13S we find " instauranienta,'" and also 
" implementa." Possibly the cuantities of corn, which were part of the 
stock, were called '-implementa." as filling prescribed portions of the bams. 

Jn comtantlis. i.e. (see pp. li'O, 132, ''pistrini etbracini"). Constantias, 
expensse; Du Cange. — Under ;he term " constantias " it would seem, that 
not onlv wc>od for fuel in baizncr ate brewing was included, but also the 
wages of the brewer and baker: for in later times there was paid with each 
firma 6*. Sc?. for wood and 3.*. iO<f. for '• liberatio faraulorum." 

Ad cornvnniitatetu. — The chapter was termed " Communitas ; " the 
common fund divisible among teem. " Communia." 

Page 1:27. Ixecepti runt fia':res. ^c. — These persons were most pro- 
bably not received as Canons, bzt only admitted to the privilege of " Frater- 
nitv " (see Du Carge and Hofcaan in voce), as is shewn by the expression, 
"tam beneficiis quam orarionib^ii." This phrase, as denoting the advantage 
of masses and of prayers, occurs in a charter of the middle of tlie thirteenth 
centurv, now in the archives of Sc. Pau":'s, which (after reciting that Alexander 
the cordwainer and Roysia Lis wife had given to the Church of St. 
Augustine at the gate of St. Peal's a piece of ground on the north side of 
the church sixteen feet wide tjwards the north, and fifteen feet in lengih 
towards the west, for the exte*iiou cf the church and the erection of an 
altar to the Vi.'-gin> f^riher s:,i:es ; that in return for this gift the Rector 
of the church, with the consen; of the Dean and Chapter, had agreed " qucd

It is probable that the " Confrari^ "' of which mention is made in the 
" Extenta terrarura Hospitalis S. Johannis JerusalfUi in Anglia."" recently 
published by the Camden Society, as always attendant upon every Pre- 
ceptory, and whose voluntary contributions formed a considerable part of 
irs revcnuHS. were fraternities of persons. v,ho shared the benefit of the 
prayers of tlie order. We may observe, that a Preccptory inhabited by 
two cr three or more members of the order would hardlv be lonelv, v.hen 
surrounded by a confraternity of persons living in socieTv, sharing the 
religious exercises of ti.e order, and contributing voluntarin-, but liberally, 
to its revenues. 

Gersuinfi. — This Anglo-Saxon word denotes any hind of compensation, 
whether in the way of purchase or reward, or for damages. The ten shil- 
lings here called gersunia was the premium or fine paid for the grant of 
the lease.

Bosworth's A.-S. Dictionarv.)

in the manor belonging to the tenant was to be accounted a legacy to the

De Tviferde. — This document is peculiarly interesting, as relating to 
one of those portions of the cathedral property which formed the "jire- 
bi^nda," or separate estate of one of the canons. (See Introduction, pp. iii.

cathedral holding separate estates. In Tuiferd, Durandus and Gueri each 
htld two hidi-'S. In Rugemere. Radulphus. a canon, had a similar holding". At 
St. Pancras, Walter, a canon, also held one hide. The property which after- 
wards constituted the two prebends of Cadington was at that time held bv the 
Canons, but was not yet i:.ade " prebendal." (.See note, '• Prastur duas prs- 
bendas," p Ixiii.) With respect to the property at Tuiferd hc-rc mentioned, 
it is interesting to observe, that the same Durandus who held it in 10S6 
was alive in 1103, and that his name appears in the catalogue given in 
Newcourfs Rcpcrlorium (vol. i. p. -1") as tlie first prebendarv of 
Twyford. The property was subsequently held for a fevr years, as we 
learn from tliis charter, by Reynerus, aiid was then surrendered bv him to 
the Chapter in favour of Walter de Cranford and his daughter. The rent 
payable is remarkable, as consisting of five shillings in raonev, and also the 
tithes of corn, slieep, and goats. Twentv shillings — a sum equal to four 
times the rr,oney-rent — was aUo to be paid at the death of the sur- 
viving tenant as an obit, on the interment of his or her body at the 
cathedral. 

Page 12S. Dc Kcnsicurda. — This manor, though it ioined Cadington, 
never paid its rent in " firms?,"' but. as the manor of Edulvesnasa, in money. 
The terms of the lease are remarkable, if the words " sic deinceps"" are to 
be literally understood, for it would seem that the rent varied in a cvcle of 
seven years. The first years rent being 5/., that of the second 6/., of the 
third 7/., of the fourth 8/. of the fifth, sixth, and seventh 10/., reverting 
again at the beginning of the second seven ye.ors to 3/. In 1279 the rent 
of the manor was £20 13a. 40"., and the value of the church twenty-eight 
marks, £18 13^. 4d.

JRicard^/y ArcJn'd' n! tenerct EdoJrcsnasa. — The former lease of this 
manor to William de Occhenden has been noticed at p. l2o. It here 
appear;, that on his death Richard the Archdeacon of Essex bought the 
lease of that manor by paying 20 marcs '• in gersumam." From the 
account here given of his conduct in bargaining vrith the Chapter to hold 
Belchamp with Edulvesuasa; and extorting their consent to the non-fuifil- 
ment on his part of all the conditions on which he obtained the two manors, 
it would seen that he was not a favourite amongst his brethren. He is sup- 
posed to have been archdeacon 1142 to 1 168, He appears to have been 
a different person from Ricardus RutTus, who, a few vears latf-r. at the time 
of the inquisition of Riilph de Diceto in 1181 (see page 111), had accu- 
mulated to himself a large share of the cathedral possessions, holdinff at 
that time, together with Edulvesnasa and Belcham.p, the manors of Barling 
and Runwell. with a moiety of the manor of Sandone. Richard the Arch- 
deacon and Richard Ruffus are both of them mentioned as having at the 
same time an interest in the church and manor of Runwell. (See page I.tO.) 

Page 1.31. Hommes ex duobtis Orlocis. — Waleton, Kvrkbv, and Thorp 
were the ecclesiastical divisions of the great manor of Edulvesnasa in HSl 
(see pp. 148, 149). In the inquisition of 1222 the Hidarii of Kirkby and 
Horlock are enumerated together, and only one Horlock mentioned, A 
change appears to have been afterwards made in the duty of repairino- 
buildings here mentioned. At the time of granting this lease the tenants 
were to repair the four houses of the court, but not the great barn : whereas 
in 1222 the granarium of Waleton was to be repaired with timber felled. 
and prepared, and carried by them, and the ox house, " bovaria," (but not 
its lean-to, " culacium,") made at their own cost of labour. (See p. -.'8.)

Page 131. Ad cnricnn periineTit singulis septimanis Ixix. opera. — In the 
inquisition of 1279 there is a list of the names of all the perscnS; 63 in 
number, from v,bom the " opera," or day-xvorks here mentioned, were due. 
The obligation was proportionate to the quantity of land, one day's labour 
per week being due for every five acres held by the tenant (see page 51, 
line 18). The whole amount of the labour here mentioned, at 69 days per 
week, is equal to that of eleven and a half men. The demesne land of 
Waieton in 1222 contained 720 acres, towards the cultivation of which that 
number of men would supplv no inconsiderable part of the necessary labour. 

Acra? de v:areto. rehinatce, faldatce. seminatce. — The nine score 
acres " de wareto '" here mentioned probably formed a third course or 
" seislo " of the demesne lands, of which we read at p 133, '• Tota seisio 
waretata." The words " rebinatse, faldatse. seminatas.' shew the actual 
condition of the fallow or wareta ; part was rehinata. twice ploughed 
(Du Cange) ; another part faldaia, folded with sheep for manure ; and 
another ieminuia, sown; the remainder was still waieta, or fallow. At 
p. 133, '■'■faldicium et/f;/i!'rm??7," folding and manure, are mentioned in con- 
junction with the " seisio waretata."

three rooms: the halla, the domus. and the thalamus (fee page 129). 
The Court-hous-e of Thorp, lure described, ■was more cxterii^ive : l.the 
hall; 2. the chamher ; 3. the trisantia ;* 4. two " privatae don^us ;" 5. the 
kitchen; 6. the brewhouse : 7. the nialthouse ; 8. the dairy; 9. the 
ox-shed; 10. three henhouses. At Sandon (p. J34) the Court-house 
contained 1. the hall; 2. the chan.b-ir : 3. the privata : 4. the ox-shed; 5. 
the washhouse (bateressa) ; 6. the brewery ; 7. the pigstye; 8. the henhouse. 
At Ardelei (p. 136) the builJings were l.a good hall; 2. a chamber; 
3. a trisanta ; 4. an addition to the hull on the south ; 5. a privata domus 
adjoining the camera; 6. another in the court; 7. a granary ; 8. a kitchen ; 
9. .1 hay-house; 10. a stable. In the lease before mentioned as granted 
to Kichard Newport, Arer.deacon of Middlesex, the condition of the 
Manor-house and building at Wa'etcn is thus described (I. 1G7): " The 
old hall with a soUarf and a fire-place (caminus), and a garderoba at the 
top of the hall on the west, and also a great chamber with a trisantia at the 
same end of the hall ; a great kitchen, in which were a bakehouse and a 
brewhouse, and an oven ; a dairy and a large granary ; a henhouse, and a 
great stable outside the cotirt (extra curiam) towards the we't, used as a 
cowhouse, because the cowhouse and ox-shed, and a long stable divided 
into three, has lately been destroyed by the inroad of the sea. Also a 
chapel situate within the court adjoining the chamiber, with five glazed win- 
dows ; a dovecote and a building to hold waggons and carts : also a 
sollar with a small cellar at the hall door." 

Page 133. Facient ju^tiliam de RacV de Marci. — Theodore and 
Robert were (as appears from the foregoing document), the Firmarii of 
Navestock : and Radulphus de Marci was a refractory tenant, who withdrew 
his services and rents due for lands held by him, belonging to the Chapter. 
The amount of these services and rents was of such value, that in the case 



* The Trisantia appears to have been that part of a hall or chamber, which was sepa- 
rated bv a screen, and which might form either an ante-chamber or a recess. In ] 283 the 
manor-house of Sutton bad " unam cameram divisam cum trisantiis ad clericos."

t The Solarium or sollar was a room or chan;ber at the top of the building. " Soln-

of the Firmarii b-:i.-;g uiiable, or finally the Chapter neglecting, to eiiforce 
the payment of tiit-m, it was but an act of justice to the Firmarii, that the 
Cliapter should release thera from a part of their obligation, and take 
account of the loss ■nhich they must sustain. It would seem, however, that 
this l^adulfus de Marci. or at least his successor, became tractable ; for we 
find in the inquisition of lii2 that V\'iHiam de Breaute. v.ith the heir and 
danghter of de Marci, then held the land of Kadulfus for xvi,v\, and 
satisfied the Crov.n for all the demands upon the hide, to vrhicb allusion is 
here made as the '-regis exactiones;" it being- said of him (p. 75)

of his v:ife. The nature of the " pactum "' or bargain here alluded to is 
not mentioned, h.ut the delav in procuring sureties for the fulfilment of it 
would show, either that there was something in it out of course, or that the

NOTES AND ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE INQUISITION OF 
THE MANORS OF ST. PAUL'S IN 1)81, pp. 140—152. 

The whole cf this Inquisition, which comprises the Churches as well as 
the Manors of the Cathedral, has generally leen assigned to the year 1I8I, 
and considered as part of the Inquisition of Radulfus de Diceto of that year 
already noticed. That part of it which relates to the .Manors (from page 
140 to the words " sumtca denariorum 1. sol.'' in page 14G,) is extracted 
from r3ook L. of which volume it occupies the 77tli and 78th folios; but 
the preface to tlie Inquisition has been omitted, because it is identical with 
the preface, which is printed at page 112, and which begins with the 
words " Ut facilius Veritas,'' and ends wiih " errcri vel fraudi.'" It is to 
be observed also, that the latter part cf the Inquisition, which relate.s to the 
Churches (comraencing at page 14G with the words '• Post maneriorum in- 
quisitionem," and ending at page 152), does not follow consecutively in 
Book L. Other matter intervenes, occupying folio 79, whilst folio 80, 
though ruled for writing, is wholly blank, the words " Post maneriorum 
inquisitionem'" occupying the first line of folio 81, and being rubricated. 
These facts would be trivial, did they not confirm the conjecture, that 
this part of Book L. has been taken from the records of two separate 
Inquisitions, the one relating to the I\Ianors, the other to the Churches; 
and that the Inquisition of the Manors, of which an abstract is here 
given, (though of the time of Henry II. and subitqiierit to 1170, when 
Robert Mantell became the Sheriff of Essex.) was prior to the Inqnis'.ticn 
of Manors and Churches in ll&l. — a conjecture forced upon us by 
the mention in this Inquisition of SLveral person::, as Firmarii of manors, 



cii yuTES AND ILLUSTEATIONS 

who had ceased to be Firmarii in 1181, such as Odo the Firmarius of Luve- 
hale (p. I4l), Bartholomeus & Gaufridus of Wycham (p. 142), Willielmus 
de Ocrhvndun of Edulvesnase (ib.). Ailmarus of Ching-ford (p. 144), and 
Theodoric of Drayton (p. 145). As respects, however, the Inquisition of 
the Churches, there is internal evidence, that it really forms a part of the 
Inquisition of USl, the names of the Firmarii according with those found 
in the list of the Firmarii in pages 1 10 — 1 I'i. 

Page 140. Tempore Bcgis Hcnrici prhni. — The reign of Henry I. as 
svnchronising with the deanship of Willielraus (from 1111 to 1 138), is here 
mentioned as the period, at which each manor was rated to hidage, according 
to the number of hides stated in this Inquisition. In the generality of the 
manors the assessm.ent continued to be the sam.e with that recorded in the 
Exchequer Domesday ; but the variations, 1. of increase of hidage. in the 
case of Ardlev from six to seven hides, of Edulvesnase from twenty-six to 
twentv-seven, of Barling from two and a-half to three; and i. of diminution 
of hidage, as at Tidwoldentun from eight hides to seven and a-half, at 
Chingford from six to five, at Barnes from eight to four, and at Sutton 
from five to three, not only prove, that as respects the manors of St. 
Paul's some considerable changes took place in the reign of Henry I. 
with respect to their hidage, but also render it probable, that similar 
changes might have been made at the sarne time in the hidage of the whole 
kingdom. 

Vicecomtti reddebat xx. fcildos. — These payments were received by the 
Vicecomes or Sheriff on behalf of the Crown, and an account of them 
rendered to the Exchequer. The amount paid by each nriauor was not 
in proportion to the number of hides, even in the same county ; if 
estimated according to the hides, Cadendon and Kensworth would be found 
to pay at the rate of 2s. per hidc; Ardley and Luvehale at 3s. 4(7., Sandon 
at 4s. 

Duas marcus vcl panem ■unlus hehdomadcE ad lihitum Jirmarii. — The 
payment of the firma of one week at the option of the Firmarius, either in kind 
or bv two marks, was an advantage to the lirmarius, whenever, by a rise in 
the price of corn, the value of a week's bread exceeded two marks, ] I. Qs. 8d. 
In the year 1283 the weekly delivery of bread was nearly 800 loaves, the 
ralue of the loaf, which weighed six marks and a-half or 52 ounces, was 
at that time three farthings, and the price of wheat 4s. 6c/. per quarter, 



OF THE INQUISITION OF THE MANORS A.D. 1181. ciii 

Whenever the price of the loaf esceeded three-eigluhs of a penny, and 
%vheat exceeded 2*. Sd. per quarter, i: -was to the advant^ige of the Firmarius 
to pay iu khid. On referring to the " .\ssisa panis cervisias" (Statutes of 
the Realm, vol. i. p. 199,) we discover, that the lowest price at which 
wheat was supposed to be sold in England was twelve pence, the highest 
twenty shillings, per quarter. 

Exaltatio Sancta: Crucis. — September the fourteenth. The festivals 
of the first, eighth, fourteenth, twenty-first, and twenty-ninth days of 
September, are thus described in the Calendar of the '' Preces Private," 
1571.

Terra cu^sisa. — Land allotted to tenants. 

Surnina denarioruvt. — The amount of the monev rent. See Introduc- 
cuction, p. XX. 

Poterit dominiis ponere ad operaiionem. — The " dominus " here men- 
tioned is not the Chapter, but the Firmarius, and the power alluded to is 
that of letting out to tenants any part of the demesne lands. In the lease 
of RuDwell (p. 125) the Chapter undertook to confirm any agreements, 
■which the Firmarius might make fur letting lands to tenants. The Firmarii 
of these two manors, Kensworth and Punwcll, were probablv not under 
the usual obligation to retain the demesne lands in their own hands, 
because the rent of those manors wa? payable in money, and not in kind. 

Page \4\. Fvit in defensa xl. soUdorura. — The manor of Luvehale 
formerly bore a part in this contribution as part of the Manor of Sandon, 
instead of paying a half mark on its own account. 

Vicecomid iiij. sol. Pra-pjOsiLo hundredi v. sol. — The Manors of St. 
Paul's in the county of Essex made payments to the Praepositus, Bailiff, or 
Reeve of the hundred, as well as to the '\'icecomes or Sheriff; but in the 
other counties, Middlesex and Herts, the payments were to the Vicecomes 
alone. 

IVardpenri]/. — In this Inquisition ^Vardpennv is mentioned as payable 
only by four manors, \Vicham, Norton, Chingford, and Nastock. We know, 
however, that it was payable from Sutton (See note, Wardpenny, p. 68), 
where a watch was kept in the night at the Regia Strata, or King's High- 
way, and a V.'aidttaff received ; tlie account of vrhich. when compared with

the tale of the Wardst:;ff as a tjock-tide ceremony ('rioliced in Sir F. 
Palcrave's Rise and Po-\ver of the British Ccmn-ionwealth. voh ii. p. clviii. 
and published by Morant in his History of Essex, i. p. 1"2G). leaves us 
v,-ithout doubt, that tlie customs of Chingford and of Sutton, as respected 
the ^^"a:ch and the Wardstafi', v.cre identical, and. if superstitious, the 
rc"'inant of a superstition as ancient as Hockday itself. 

Prge l4l. Altera dirnidia est in doruinio gchJahUis. — That is, tloe 
remaining half-hide (which, with the half-liide belonging to the Church and 
the nine hides assessed to the tenants, completed the ten liides for which 
hidage v.as due from the manor), was in the demesne paying hidage. The 
demesne lands of Sandon in 1222 really contained five hides and a half, hut 
hidage v.'ss paid bv the Chapter upon onlv hclf a hide. So also at Wich;im, 
(see page 142) wh.ere the demesne contained 200 acres, the land of the 
demesne, which paid geld with the Tillata, was onlv 39 acres. 

Page 142. Pro jc.rvii. hidis et dimcd' de Snuiinge. — Some words appear 
to have been oiriitted — the right reading being, as we find in page 38. in 
the description of this manor, " Defendit se pro xxvii. hidis [cum duabus 
hidis] et dimid' de prcbenda de Sneting ;'' this prebendal manor bearing its 
part in the payment of the hidage with the other lands. 

A tempore fViffi de Hocltendvne. — This person became Firmarius of 
this manor during the Deanship of a Ralph and the Archdeaconsliip of a 
William, who were the witnesses to his lease (see p. 125); the only two 
persons of these names, who were at the same time Dean and Archdeacon. 
were Ralph de Langford and William Archdeacon of London, and that 
between 1 150 and 1160. 

Canonicii vera I. lib. — It appears from the lease of this tnanor (p. 129), 
that of the fifty pounds here mentioned, five were rent for the churches of 
the manor ; " et de ecclesii? ejusdcm manerii centum solidos ; i.e. in summa 
1. libra s." 

Quietcc surit 'prater qvavi de Jiydagio et denegeld. — The hidage 
and denegeld here mentioned appear to be different pavments from those 
mentioned above, as payable annually to the sheriff". The antiquity of 
this document is proved incidentally by an observation of Spelman, that he 
hcd found no mention of denegeld after the reign of Stephen

Page 144. De (juolibef hnschondo. — The words " hui-band'" and " Inis- 
wife" are descriptive of a married pair, as the house-Lond and the house- 
wife, In the laws of Canute (§ 73) the husband is denominated simply 
ti^e '• bonda." a word which, as meaning '-'one bound," is a remarkable 
evidence of the anciovit feeling arid opinion a- to the reality of the ties of 
marriage. 

Oholu.'i dc franco phis'to.— ''' VruM-uin plegium" expresses in Korman- 
Latin the Anglo-Saxon '• Frith-borh,"" or Peace-pledge, by which every Free- 
man was under security to the Crown for his good behaviour, and which was 
probablv coeval with the origin of Anglo-Saxon society, though not forming a 
distinct feature in the Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence before the time of Edgar, 
A.D. 959-973. From the time of Canute (a.d. 1017-1035) we have 
evidence, that the institution had taken the shape, in M'hich it is presented 
to US; as an English law or cnstom, affecting every town and village in 
every county ; the law of Canute, s. 20 (Laws of England, vol, i. p. 387), 
having enacted, that every Freeman be brought into a hundred and into 
a tvthing, who wishes to be entitled to Lad or to "\Ver ; . . . . and that 
everv one be brought into a hundred and in '-borh' (i.e. security); and 
let the "borh" hold and lead him in every plea. Under Edward the 
Confessor the custom was still more clearly defined; the whole of tlie inha- 
bitants of every villa being formed into '• decennae,'' or companies of ten, 
the nine being answerable for any " foris factura" committed bv one of the 
ten. Over each decenna there was a chief entitled Frithborgheved or Head- 
borrow, and. in Latin Deccnnarius or Cajdtali- Plegius. Francjdege appears 
to be recognised in the laws of V\';il. (1. 2.' : 111. 14 : ib. pp. 479, 493) as one 
of the customs of the time of tlie Confessor: but there is no certain evidence,

]iose of ascertaining the condition of tlie decania? or decennfc, whether de- 
fective or havintr increased in number. The age of twelve years was that at 
which, under llic law of Canute, a? well as under the law of Hen. I. the free- 
man was to he in " borh." and enrolled in a deccnna. Tlie view of francplege 
was declared l)v the lawyers in the reigns of the Edwards (see Placita de quo 
Warranto) to be " quaedara jurisdictio regalis mere spectaus ad coronam et 
ad dignitatem corona- domini regis;" and also " quaedam justiciaria ad 
dignitatem coronae regis spectans, pro conscrvatione pacis suai. quam quidem 
justiciariam neraini licet exercere, sine speciali concessione domini regis vel 
ejus progenilorum" (pp. 88, 89, et alibi); but, notwithstanding these decla- 
rations, the Rotuli Hundrerlorum and the Placita de quo "Warranto contain 
abundant evidence, that tlic lords of manors generally possessed this pri- 
vilege in virtue of custom or of royal grants, but which, if prior to the 
Conquest; had need of confirmation ; it being laid down as a principle 
(page 4), " quod in Conquestu .'\nglia? qua'libet jurisdictio ad coronam 
regiam fuit annexa.'" The writers upon the " view of francplege " give no 
information, as to the period in which the personal attendance, of all the 
free tenants for enrolment in deceuna? at the manor courts, or that of the 
"Capitales Decennarii," or Headmen at the county court, ceased to be 
required. There can be no doubt of its contiimance to as late a period as 
the reign of Edw. HI., the ])Ovments for view of francplege from each manor 
forming a part of the revenue of the Crown, which the subject frequently 
contrived to evade, and the e.xaction of which by the King's vicecomites 
or bailiffs was an excuse for oppression. At this period also the obligation 
of the ten members of the decenna to be answerable to the Crown for any 
*' forisfactura" committed by any one of them still continued in force. 
Upon the numerous duties performed by the manorial courts at the time 
when the view of francplege took place, and which are described in the Statutes 
of the Realm, vol. i. page 246. it would be foreign to our purpose to make 
any observation ; and if apology be necessary for the length of this note, it 
must be found in the fact, that the law and practice of francplege, as here 
stated and illustrated by the examples in the note below,* is one of

mav cxiort moncv from the suitors of the hundred; and tliose suojcct to 
thera ; of those ^^•ho make ale and gather garbs in the autumn, taking away 
and extorting corn from the poor." From the mention which is made of 
Scotalia and Scotalhr- in the Forest Ciiarfers of Henry III. and in the Char- 
ter and Forest Law of Edward I. it would appear, that the Scotalia was an 
assembly, the proceedings of which were connected with the administration 
of forest law. In the Magna Charla of John no notice is taken of Scot- 
alia?: but. since in the subsequent forest charters thoy are distinctly pro- 
hibited, we mav coiiclude. that the Scotalhe were amongst the " nialfC con- 
suetudincs dc forestis." which, by the terms of the Magna Ch.arta of John. 
v:eTe to be inquired into ajul done awav. J'ut it would seem, tiiat, though 
the great lords and tlieir tenants c.esircd tlie alielition of the Scotalhi?. the 
foresters and bailiffs, v.-]iose pecuniary interest-, or wliose sports, were 
endangered, had influence enough to prevent their annih.ilation ; for not only 
do we find, th.at a limired construction is put u])on the prohibitory clauses of 
the charters, both in tlie English translation of the charter of Edward I. and 
also iu the " statute of fiuts levied "" (Stat. Re. i. 120, 12G) ; but it is also to 
be remarked, tliat v.hcri the prohibitory statute of Edward III. JSol (ib. p. 
821 ). ( v,hich forbad " any forester or keeper, or ker'pcr of forest or chace, or 
any othei' minister, to make or gather sustenance, or victuals, or other thing, 
by colour of iheir oliice, against any man's will,"") allowed them still to take 
'•that which was due of old riglitj' it rather est;iblished than destroyed the 
custom. In the forest charters mention is made of " corn, lambs, and young 
pigs,'" as take li for iln' Scolallrc : but Fleta's '' Scuf,iles garb;c"' (ii. c. 41. 
§ 25), and the conduct of the foresters of Cranborne, as described below, 
would render it probable that the demands were iu their time limited to what 
was required for making ale.*^ 

The following payments were anciently due from the Chapter .^Ianor of 
Chingford to the Half Hundred of the Abbot of Waltham : " De Domi- 
nico ad Scotallam \ii.d. et de quolibet astro tenentinm (from e^'erv liearfh)

UF THE lN(,'UISITir.N 01" THE MANOJIn, A.l'. llSl. eix 

In Sumner's E&^av on GaveUiind (p. 30), a charier is cited, in v.liicli 
mention is made of pavmcr>t? bv tenants to the Scotalla of tlie Archbishoj); 
and in tlic liegcr book of tlie Abbess of Shaflesbury (Ilarlcian ?>IS. 61), 
v.T find the follo\ving entries: — 

'■ Homines de Wrokesham. QuiHbct debet ad scotallam, iij''. ob." 

"Omnes ahi ibnnt ad scot^allum dominie sicut ad scotallum vicinorum." 
fob 86. 

" Quihbct, pra-ter liberc tenentes. ad scotalhnn, iij'b ob. vidua ij'^'.'" 

Resides, however, tlie Scotalla of the Forest, there was also a Scouslia of 
the Church, which wo find mentioned and prohibited in the Provincial Con- 
stitutions of Archbisliops Langion and Edmund in 1209 and 1236. and in 
the Diocesan Canon' of Durham. \\'orcester, and Salisbuiy, in 1220. 1240, 
and 125C From the Cor^tirution of Edmund, which forbids the Bannuni 
Scotallorum, or bidding to the Scot<ile, being made by the priest, ue learn, 
that notice of these meetings ■^\a? publicly given ; and, from the description 
of the object of the institution, viz. the salvation of men's souls and bodies 
(" Scotalla* et alia) communes j'otationes pro salute animarum et corporum 
introducta^" Wilkins, Concilia. \<<\. i. ])p. 530 and 719), we may reason- 
ablv conjecture, that this Suotal(."''wed its origin to, or is connected with, the 
Anglo-.Saxon sawl sceat, soul scot, symbolum anim;e, or pecunia sepulturae, 
which was recognised by the laws of Athelstan, Edgar. Ethelred, and Canute, 
as payable to the church of tli- d^'ceated at the ojx-n grave. (See the

CXIV NOTES AND ILLUSTKATJONS 

The churches thus enumerated were all '• in dominio canonicoruni.'" 

The two following. Hunwcll and Chincford, are described as not beinfr 
'* furiduta? in dominio canonicoruni." 

The condition of the revenues of llunwell was remarkable. The 
demesr.o of llie canons paid to the church, instead of tithes, the produce 
of two acres, one of wheat, tlie other of oats. Of the tithes of tlie villata, 
great and small, the church liad one third, the remaining two parts belonging 
to the demesne, i)i order to make up the firma payable to the Chapter, 
and bc'ing so aj'proprinted •' per capitulum." The rector (Persona Ra- 
dulphus ) rented for his personal benefit these tithes, paying for them to the 
Firmarius four shillings per annum. All the tithes of the demesne, and 
those which contributed to make up the firma, were in the hands of 
•' i\Iagisttr Hicardus." bv grant uf Kicliard the Archde;icon. and the 
pel-mission of Ricardus Ruiius, the Firmarius. 

The Churcli of Chingford was not in the demesne. The denicsne lands 
were free from tithe, and the \-illata paid great tithes onlv, never having 
paid any other. 

The Church of Magna Augra, (High Ongar,) is enumerated in the Inqui- 
sition because the little manor of Norton was in that parish, and paid to 
that church great and small tithes. The reason of the payment of a 
" socca ■■ of wheat, aud another of oats, to the church of Fifield. '' propter 
TJcinitatem Christianitatis," is remarkable. 

The chapel of Twyford paid 12d. to St. i'aul's for the tithes of corn, 
sheep, and goats. The description of this manorial chapel is worthy ob- 
servation : as not being appended to any ueighbouring church, and as, by 
the permission of the Chapter, baptizing infants and burying the bodies of 
any persons who died, not belonging to any church of the Bishop of the 
diocese. 

Quid fuJiaiur capifulv. — In ihe way of pension the churches were a 
source of revenue to the Chapter. The payments were made either "per 
clericos' or "per firmarium nomine ecclesis." The clericus does not seem 
to have been always the "persona," or rector, but rather an agent.

It is to be rernarked tliat tlio chiirclies of Runwcll and Ching-ford made 
no similar pavmcnts to the Cliapter, and tliat tliey are said not to be "in 
dominio canonicorimi."" The clmrch ol' Kyrkebi was the only church " in 
dominio "' that made no such ))avment. 

Qvid cccfeiUi' inatrici jure pdrocliiuli nolvahtf. — The single instance of 
such a payment is tiiat made to tlie church of Fifhyde or Fifield by the 
manor of Norton (see page 150), " propter vicinitatem Christianitatis," for 
that proximitv. of which the peojile of Norton availed themselves, in 
frequenting the church of Fifield and partaking in relig'ious ordinances. 

Qui'l solvatur pro sinndaUhvs. — This payment is distinguished from 
one afterwards mentioned — that to the Archdeacons. By the Canon law, 
( De off. Jud. Ordin. c. Conquerente,) a Bishop holding a Synod was 
entitled to receive the sum of two shillings from every person cited to it. 
the payment being termed '• Synodaticura ; '" the object of the provision 
being, as is stated by Barbosa (De Off. et Potest. Ej)iscopi, p. 41, alleg. 
130, n. 4), that of ttrnpting the bishops to hold tlieir synods; " Ut 
cpiscopi ad synodum celebrandam alliciantur."" The Synodalia of the 
English Church appear to have a different origin, and to be connected 
with the ancient system of ecclesiastical justice, which existed under the 
.\nglo-Saxou king's, bv which ecclesiastical causes were tried in the court 
of the hinidred. The sejiaration of the ecclesiastical from the secular 
courts was made by tlie Conqueror ( Carta Williolmi. Laws of England, 
vol. i. p. 49-5 ) ; but the fact mentioned by Lindwood (De Constitu. c. Quia 
Incontin. verb. Cnpitulum, p. 14). and cited by Gibson (CodcN; p. 073j, 
ih.Tt Kiiri-decaiKil Cli;.]iters wcie ill ^(l!ln- jdaces held i'rom three weeks to

Turn of the sheriff' or Shiremot wa? lield twice in the year, the Synodu? of 
the bishop for ecclesiastical causes was held twice in the year also. The 
Synodalia were payable at Easter and at Alichaelmas — at the first and 
second synod : but in j^roeess of time the holding these half-yeai'ly courts 
seems to ha\c, devolved upon the Archdeacons, who now in many ))laces 
hold visitations or synods at Easier and at Michaelmas in every year. It 
is remarkable that Lindwood. in the ])assage cited above, speaks of the custom 
of holding- chapters from three weeks to three weeks, as resting rather upon 
the Custom (or Connnon law) of England, than u})on the Common law of 
the Church at large. 

Quis cdlUisat denuriuin S'tti Pelri. — Tiiere can be little doubt, that 
Peter-pence v.a^ a grant of Ahns to the rojies in the time of the Anglo- 
Saxon kings ; the earliest date assigned to it being the reign of Ina, who 
became king of Wessex in GSS, and after a reign of thirty-two years retired 
to Rome. The payment of the denarius S. Petri, or Romfeoh, was the 
subject of legislation by Edward and Gut brum (circa 900), by Edg-ar 
(959), by Ethelrcd (998), by Canute (1017), by Edward the Confessor 
(1043). It also forms a part of the laws of the Conqueror and of Hen. I. 
(See the references, Denar. S. Petri, in Spelman's Concilia, and Pomfeoh, 
Laws of England.) Prior, however, to the Law of Edward the Confessor 
(§ x) the Anglo-Saxon code affords no information as to the persons from 
whom the Komfeoh was due ; but that law, as explained by the law of 
William (I. xvli), acquaints us, that the possessor of agricultural stock of tlie 
value of thirty pence,'' being an Englishman, and of the value of eighty 
pence (half a mark), being a Dane, was liable to Komfeoh, and that the 
payment by them of one penny acquitted their bordarii, and herdsmen, and 
servants. It appears also from the law of ^^'illiam, that a payment bv 

* In tie Life of Ofid (Muit. Parit, pp. 29, 31), it is staled that Offa's original grant 
was tbat of one silver piece from tbose wbo possessed cattle of the vivlue of thirty eilver 
pieces. It is also stated, tliat, wben tbat monarch granted Peter-pence from his whole 
kingdom, lie reserved the Peter-pence from the lands of St. Alban to the use of the 
Abbey. These lands in later times included the parislics which formed ibe hundred of 
Casbio. nnd the Abhatird nrr-bd' aconrv of St. Albnn's. in the countv of Herts.

The Inquisition of the Ciiurches of St. Paul's, in IlHl. to which our 
attention is now directed, illustrate^ both tlie mode of collection and the 
payment of tlie Honifeoh a century later than the laws above recited. The 
question ^' quix colligat denarium S. Petri?'' im])lies the absence of 
uniformity as to the collectiou of the lax. In six instances no return v,as 
made to tb.e question : but from ihe replies wliich are recoi'ded we learn, 
that the rural dean {jUcanus loci) collected it in Cadendon and Kensworth, 
the Sacerdos at Ikdcharap and six other places, and the Firmarius at 
Chingford and Sutton. Of the person, to whom the money was paid, 
mention is made only in two places, Cadeudon and Kensworth, where the 
rural dean is said to have paid the money to the Archdeacon. The collec- 
tion from Barnes, iu Surrey, was paid at Wimendou ; but in two instances, 
Norton and Sutton, tlie Firmarius, having collected the money, kept it 
to himself. Twelve parishes made the following payments : —

The Domesday of St. Paul's of 1222 makes no mention of Peter-pence. 
But from the Inquisition of 1279, iu Book I. v.e learn, that at Sutton, at 
Chinf^ford, and at Norton, the persons who paid the Rome-penny were 
Villain tenants ; that married men paid a penny, widowers and widows one 
halfpenny, and that the amount so received was reckoned among the profits 
of the Manor. At Sutton these payments were due iu the 18 Edw. I. 
(128P), not from all the ^'iliaiu tenants, but only from twenty-five of thtrn 
(I. 32 b). At Chingford the sum collected from tlie " Nativi" was 2s. Cic/. 



CWIU XOTE> AND IT.LUS^TRATIONS 

(I. 59 b), and in llie small rnnnor of Norton, held by seven " Nativi.'' the 
'=ii:n collected was 7d. (I. l.'O ),.) 

Tlie information wliicli \\( ]ios^o?s ro-ju'crma ibo pavnient of tlii^ tax to 
the Court of Ktnne is very meagre. Inott (History of tlie Enp-lish Ciiurch, 
p. 223). misapprehending- the St-atute of Carlisle of 35 Edw. I. (which pro- 
hibited the superiors of tlie monastic orders abroad from levying taxes upon 
abbevs and monasteries in England), states, but withcmt autliority, that 
Peter-pence was one of the grievances of the English nation. Tiie amount 
of the tax was scarcely great enough to give it this character. 

In \\'iikins"s Concilia (vol. ii. p. 460.) there is a papal bull of .John 
XXII.. which first recites a bull (supposed to be of Gregory W..) in which 
the sums I'.ayaide as Peler-i>encc from each English diocese are recordod ; 
and tiioi states, that the t],r(>c liiindred mancusie or marks, winch were 
originally granted in 837, are just the amount of the sums due from the 
dioceses. This Pope, in the first year of his pontificate, directed the atten- 
tion of the English bishops to the fact, that Peter-pcnco. though collected, 
were cot duly jiaid to the Court of Home, but, as is evident from the 
documents recorded in Wilkins's Concilia ('"i.) he did not expect a greater 
sum to be paid than 300 marks. The Bulls on tliis subject are dated in the 
month of May, 1317, and it is remarkable, tliat the Chapter of Canterbury, 
in reply to a Breve regium of Edward II., dated 24 April of that year, had 
returned answer to the king the day following, that in obedience to the 
king's writ they had searched their records, and liad found no writing 
relative to the exaction of this t<ix. This pope by his Bull ajjpointed 
Rigandus de Asserio, a Canon of Orange, to superintend the business of the 
collection and payment of the Peter-pence. It is probable, that during the 
whole of the fourtecntli and fifteenth centuries persons were sent from time 
to time to England on the same business, though the onlv person, who is 
known to have resided in England as collector of the Peter-pence, was the 
last, namely, Polydore \'ergil, an Italian of Urbino, who lived here for forty 
years, was archdeacon of Wells and prebendary of Hereford, and in the 
4 Edw. \T. had leave granted to him to return to iiis own country, the 
profits of liis archdeaconry and ]>rebcnd being continued to him bv y)atent 
for bis life. (5?trype"s j'Meinorials. vol. iii. p. 490, ed. 1622.;

The expectation thus held out, as re?]»ects the visitation of 1 181, is unhappily 
disappointed. Book L. (fol. S3 to t-o) does indeed contain an account of the 
ornaments and books of twenty churches in the city of London at that 
period, but the folios ap])arently intended for the inquisition of the Country 
churches are blank. It is, however, to be observed, that in the same volume 
(fol. 136-143) there is a record of the visitation of tlicse Country churches 
in the year 1^4), and that there is a fuller record still of another visita- 
tion of them in 1279 in book L

(L 79), in like manner, there was 'L'na aula cum camera ct capella ad

David, — This Nicolas was probfibly Nicolas Scriba. who was rrcbciidary 
of Harlestoii, within the manor of Willesdon, in the time of the Survey. 
The dominium or demesne described as held by David was probably one of 
the other prebends within the manor of Willesdon. Tlie name of David is 
not found amongst the prebendaries of that period. 

Viii. ocvd' dc la CnoJlc — Cnolle i- probably the word now spelt 
•' knoil/" a small liill or rising ground. The Cnolle appears to have con- 
tained sixteen acres, and to have been at a distance from Wilsdon. in the 
manor of Sutton, of which Chiswick was a part. In tlie inquisition of 
Belcharap mention is made of a " commnna."' common or open space, called 
the Knoll. '• Non habctur aliquid communa? in villa nisi ilia strata, quse 
vocatur la Cknolle." i. K'G. 

In tempore Wulmanni, — Wnlman or Ulstan, as he is otherwise called, 
was the first Dean of St. Paul's after the Conquest. This account of the 
firmse rendered by the manors in the original IMS. follows as closely as it is 
here printed, and is in the same handwriting. It appears to be a transcript of 
a similar account on the first folio of Book 1., there written in an earlier hand. 
^Ve have to apprise the reader that the clause " Nastocha Aldwini duas 
septimanas et duos dies," is twice repeated in the original MS., as is the 
clause " Hunwella duas septimanas." In both cases the copyist committed 
an error in inserting Runwell twice, and in writing " Nastocha Aldwini " 
inst-ead of " Nastocha Edwini,"' there being two manors of that name in the 
Exchequer Domesday, both of them belonging to the Chapter of St. Paul's. 
The scribe has also made another error, writing " Tillingham tres septi- 
manas," instead of rjuatnor. a? in the older document.

NOTES A.VD ILLirSTHATiOXS OF THE 
ARTICULI VISITATIONIS MAXEIIIORUM S'CTI PAUL!, 

cincA 1290. 

The date 1290 ha; been assignieJ to these Articles of Viiitation. because 
thev are found recoi'ded in Book I. immediately following the '"' Redditus 
ct Consuetudines "' of the manor of Nastok, vrhich v^ere written subse- 
quently to the feast of St. Michael. 20 Edw. I., 1291. These articles are 
preceded by a Catalogue of Evidences relating to that !Manor. lliirty-eight 
in number. 

In the Statu'.es of the Realm (vol. L p. 242) there is a similar set of 
Articles, entitled " Erteuta Maneriorum." transcribed from the " Liber 
Elorn '" now in the archives of the citv of London ; and it is stated, that in 
printed copies of the Statutes these articles are inserted as a statute of 
4 Edw.T. Fleta (Book IL c. Ix.xi.) recommends the use of such an '-exten- 
sion" of the particulars of a manor, and inserts Articles of inquisition, which, 
with some omissions, appear to be the same with those in the " Liber 
Horn." The " Extenta,'' or Articles, as here given from the St. Paul's 
document, the first clause excepted, are more full and complete, especially 
with respect to the praedial services of the tenants, than they are in the 
Liber Horn, or in Fleta's copy. 

Page 153*. Cuytllugiuhi. — Defined by Liiidwood (III tit. 1", p- 200,) 
as the place adjoinincr the Court, where greens and pot-herbs (herbfe et

Vivnrinrn. — A purely Latin word, applied equally to the park, the aviary, 
the fish-stew, or the oyster-bed. See P'acciolati in voce. 

Hnhdgium. — The word has two meanirgs : the right of cutting grass 
and feeding cattle, or the place where the aerbage grows. It is here used 
in the latter sense. 

Carucata. — A plough-land. "We learn from Fleta (I I. 72, § 4,) that the 
dimension of the Carucata (as denoting a quantity of land cultivated by the 
plough in a vear.) varied, according to the iramber of courses of cultivation 
to which the land was subject. If the lai.i lay in three courses, 60 acres 
being sown in winter, 60 in S]iring. and 60 f:.'.lov.-ed in summer, then the ISO 
acres so ploughed fomied the Carucata ; but if tiio land was in two cf>urses,

distinguished fr-am the " intrinsic! tenentes."' The object of this article of 
the luquisitioD. as we may gather from the English translation (Stat. 
Realm. I. p. 242), appears to have been simply this, that whether the 
tenants were dwellincr within the manor or not, their names and tenements 
should be recorded.*

persons corceming whose custorrijry services inquiry was thus made, were

the freeman was not bound to any ser\ices of this kind, this article of

to services in o:Ler jdaces, were ter^ied " forii'seci." In ibe Rot. HuikI. Co. O.xon.

inquiry would testify, how frequerit were tlie instances in which the " libcri

were due, the performance of the services not alteiing their free condition.

an acc-'Unt of both these services, as due from tcnar.ts in the manor of 
Xastotk. Bc-dhalfaker is tlie service of mowing half an acre, " Falcabit 
diraidiam acrara prati pro Bedehalfaker.'' " Bedmad " is the service of mowing, 
whether as described in I. C9. '' quinque acras de Bedemad," or as in I, 71, 
" adjavabit ad Bedemad per unum diem." 

jP)-ccaricp sicca'. — Boon-da vs without allownnce of drink. 
Cherchesfd — Churchscd (or Cyricsceat) is defined by Fleta. I. c.45, § 28, 
as a certain m^easure of wh.;-at, \^hich every one offered on St. Martin's day to 
the Church, it being not onlv an Er.gliih, but a British custom. Sir H. Ellis, 
in his Introduciion to Domesdav, has noticed the various })assages in that 
record, in which mer.tion is made of this payment, and from which it 
a[)pears. that tlie annual pnvm.ent of corn in kind had been commuted in 
various places for money. The law of Hen. I. (xi. 4) recognises Cyricsceat, 
as a payment due at Martinmas to the Bisho]i, under tlie ancient penalty 
mentioned in the Domiesdav of Worcester (fol. 174;. of a fine of fcle\en 
times the amount, if the Cyricsceat were not paid on the day. Sir H. ElHs 
also brings to notice a ]iayment made to the m.nnor of Glastonbury in 1201 
of sixty hens as Churchset. The records of St. Fauhs do not throw any 
light upon this custom, but the instances which occur in the Inquisition of 
the county of Oxford, 7 Edw. I. (Rot. Hundr. vol. II. p. 688,) of cocks and 
hens paid to the lord of the manor of Iftlee bv Cotaiii (p. 712). by Servi at 
Sunecumbe (757), bv the tenants denominated " Carucarii " at Wytchurch 
(77G). by Servi custumarii at Stoke Bassett (779), by Villani at Lewknor 
of a O'.iarter of wheat (782). and at WalHngton bv tenants of the same class 
of six bushels of wlieat, seem to shew, not only that Cvricsceat was a tax 
then borne bv the lower orders of tenants, but also that at the close of 
the thirteenth century the lords of manors had converted to their own 
use the payments anciently due to the Church. Had not the pope 
appointed his collectors, Rouipeny might probably have shared the same 
fate. 

Gidunselver. — Quaere. Gi^llinaselver, m.cncy in lieu of fowls.

Uahmnn pra'purcnidu. — See note, p. 90, Quarta pars plumbi 
Page 155. Qnaiituin duhif pro sitd fiUa maiitanda. — The marriage of 
the daughters of the riativi or serf's, by reaioving the population from the 
manor, was a loss to the lord. This appears to be the foundation of the 
■^■ell-known pavment termed " merchetum."" At Belchamp (I. 106) we 
read, " Xullus custumarius extra villam suam filiam sine licentia maritabit. 
Custumariu? filiam custumarii sine licentia domini accipiat in conjugem in 
villa. Sed custuraarius maritabit filiam suani liberis in villa, non extra, 
sine licentia." At S-andon (I. 145) we read, "Custumarii item dicunt, 
quod pro filiabus suis maritandis consueverunt solvere domino ij. solidos 
tantum." At Wicham (I. 97). " Omnes terientes facient fincra ad volun- 
taiem domini pro filiabus suis extra manerium maritandis." 

Page 155*. Qui pjo>sunt taUiari ad voJ-'intatem dotiiini et (jxii item. — 
Taille, Tallagium, that which is paid as a tax or excise. Any pubhc tax was 
termed Tallagium, as we learn from the statute of 25 Edvr. 1. " Nullum 
tallagium vel auxilium per nos vel per hseredes nostros in regno pouetur vel 
levcter sine voluntare et consensu.'' kc. The Uullage to which this article 
of Inquisition refers, was that which anv lord of a manor might impose upon 
his tenants, and. as ma}- be gathered from the wider terms in which the 
article is set foith in Fieta (II. c. 71, ^ 15"), was limited bv the rank of the 
tenant, whether " custumarius " or " nativus.'" The tenement of the cus- 
tomary tenant might be liable ro yearlv taillnge, but the amour:t was such 
as could be paid "sine destructione et exilio (^qu.e\\\\o) faciendo ;" but 
there was no limit to the demand, which the lord might make upon the 
servus or nativus, or upon him who, holding, according to Bracton, in pure 
villenage (H^ c. 2S, § o), was bound to unlimited service, " semper 
tenebitur ad incerta," and could be taxed at the will of the lord, either 
more or less, or, according to the terms of the French Chartie, "alto et 
basso." \\ hether the lords of manors were accustomed to exercise this 
right of taillage without restriction, is questionable, but there is every reason 
to believe, that the right of taillage upon the tenants gave the lord the 
power of throwing the burden of any public taxation upon the cultivator 
of the soil, and that taill&ge operated in favour of the lord, like the cove- 
nants in modern leases bv wliich the teiiant engages to meet the taxation. 
The following extracts from the liotuli Hundredorum. Com. C^xon. 7° 
Edw. I are a few of numerous instances of the right of taillage u;)on tcr.ants 
of difierent ranks : —

permitted all the tenants, free and custum-ary, to plant trees before their

kinds of trees, poplar, willow, and another kind of poplar called '' abellmn," 
but not oak or beech, except for housebote and heybote. 

An nativi lendiderint vitulum. jmUanum, ve! bovem, de propria nutri-

the lord the pre-option of purchase, for v,-e read amongst the customs 
of Belchamp ll. 106 b ). '* Licitum sit custumariis equos et boves et omnia

in distinct terms in the later leases. The right to housebote and heybote was, 
however, possessed occasionallv by other ten.-ints. In the manor of Newiuton,

COMPOTUS MANERIORUM ET FIIIMARUM. 

This coErpotus is extracted from a large volume, having on the outside 
the title " Statuta Majora,'' under a covering of transparent horn, the volume 
being so styled as distinguished fiora the " Statuta Minora,'' a smaller 
voluD"ie cf Dearly the same contents, but written in a much smaller liand. 
The writing of the Statuta Mnjora is of the early part of the fourteenth 
century. The chief value of this Compotus, as connected Avith this work, 
consists in its exhibiting the order and amount of the firma? paid by the 
different rr.r.nors; as the Comporus Bracini. v.'hich follows, explains the 
method in which the grain delivert'd with the firmae was converted into 
bread and beer, and distributed to the members of the cathedral.

per d?.y, in some way a tenth penry or tithe, which was paid to the almoner 
of the cathedral, and denas mav be a form of dizenas, quasi dies-enas ; 
but all that we know certainly of the dizen^ is, that they were monev 
parrcentS; made in each of the fifr^-two weeks of the year, by each manor in 
turn {on fifrr-two consecutive Sundr.vs, commencing with the Festival of St. 
Faith. October 6), and that the amount from the difi'erent manors varied, 
the lowest amount as dizen^e bcinc' forty, the highest sixty shillings. 

Page 155. Ad dfifectum hraclni. — The meaning of this phrase may be 
deduced from observing, that tVie manors which made these payments, were 
those of iielchamp, Piunwell, and Norton, which in the time of Wulmar the 
dean <'see p. 152) provided firmae in produce, viz. Runwell for two weeks, 
Norton for one, and Belchamp for eight ; but since in later times Runwell 
and Norton furnished no firma ir kind, and Belchamp only six firma? in 
kind in place of eight, it may be concluded, that the payments stated to be 
•' ad defectum " were monev pavments in lieu of the deficient firmae in kind. 

Ad ivpphmentum. — This pavment being generally fi*. ^d appears to be 
the s^me with that mentioned in page 160 as the 6.s. 8rf., which was paid 
with evePi- firma for the supply of wood. In page IGo we read, that it was

tlie custom of the firraarius to give ^vi•h every firma half a mark for v,-ood. 
ofren more, rarely les?, " sspiu? vero plus, minus vero ravo :" and from 
v.hat is also there said of the firmarius paying a fine to the keeper cf the 
Lrewerv, and of the paymfr.t de))ending on the price of wood, it would 
seem, that this pavme:.t at kst became fixed in amount,, and was a com- 
mutation for some defi-ite qusr.tity of fuel. 

Pacre lo8. Firma prhna de Barling. — The " dizena" and the " firma" 
from each m.anor were iiot paid on the same, hut consecutive Sundays. On 
the first Sundav after the Festival of St. Faith the Church received a dizena 
from Belchamp and a firma from Barliug. on the second Sunday a dizena 
from Barlincr and a firma from Sandon, and so on. It is to be remarked. 
that the number of firriiac'. that is. of payments in kind, was forty-five, but 
the number of Sundavs in the compotus at pages 158 and 159 is forty- 
eitrht, there being three Sur.days, on which what is termed a " defectus " 
was paid bv three manors in bleu of produce in kind. Money payments 
were made everv Suncav u. the vear. but the delivery of corn was dis- 
continued during the harvest month of September. 

Pacre 160. Per rnensuram regis rvj. quarteria. &:c. — The amendment 
of wei'^hts aud measures was one of the articles demanded by the Barons, 
and conceded in the Magi^a Charta of King John, and, as respects the 
measure of corn, the Magna Charta of i'5 Ed. I. declared, that the Quarter 
of London should be used throughout the realrn. In the " Assisa de 
Mensuris" (incerti temporise, that Quarter is said to contain eight bushels, 
and in the " Statutum de Pistoribus " mention is made of the standard 
bushel, sealed with an iron seal of our Lord the King, and denominated the 
Kind's measure. The statutes of Edward III. (which are all of them later 
than the Compotus Maneriorum of St. Paul's now under our consideration), 
attest the difficulty which then existed, and which at the distance of 500 
years still exists, of enforcing an uniform measure. It would seem that the 
King's mandate, though, as asserted in 14 Edw. III. (1340), not then 
obeyed throughout the kingdom, was put in force at St. Paul's at an earlier 
period, as earlv as 12S3. the Compotus Bracini of that year (see p. 164) 
statinc" that the firms were in Quarters of eight bushels. '' ad mensuram 
regis." 

Ad hracinitrn. ad carneraht. — The payments "ad bracinum "' were 
received bv the Custos bracini, who rendered an account of the receipts and

expenditure of the brewerv, which included the bakehouse nnd the mill. 
The payments "ad cameram" were made to the Caraerariu? or Chamberlain, 
whose duty it was to provide all thing's required for divine service, to collect 
payments, and to ])av the proper stipends at the appointed seasons. A 
member of the Chapter was appointed for this duty. ( S.'c Appendix to 
Dugdale's St. PaiiVs. p. 51.) The Camerariu? was the receiver and pay- 
master of rents and stipends, but the Tbesauraiius of tlie cathedral was the 
keeper, not of its money, but of its treasures, such as plate, vestments, 
books, ornaments, relics. tS:c. being assisted in this charge by the Sacristan 
and the ^^ergers. The value of these treasures was such as would bear 
comparison with the value of Crown jewels. 

Page 1G4*. Hac su7if duodtchn manerla. S'c. — Tliis account of the 
"firma-"" rendered b}' the manors of St. Paul's occupies the first folio of 
Book I., and precedes the account of Tiiomas Coaling, the Custos bracini in 
1283. It is here inserted, as being the first document in order of time, in 
which the quantities of grain contained in each firma are stated ; the accounts, 
which are prior to it, enumerating the firmfe only bv weeks and days (as in 
p. 152), or by the whole number provided by each manor in the year, as in 
the inquisition of 1181 (p. J 40 — 14.5). In this document the measurement 
of the trrain. and the number of oaarler? in each firma, was accurdins: to an 
older standard, and not according to the King's measure. Each firma, as 
anciently delivered, contained l^f, quarters of wheat (15 of which were for 
bread and 2>\ for beer), but afterwards 16 quarters ; anciently Z}, quarters 
of barley, but afterwards 3 quarters. The quantities, however, of the 
wheat and the barley were not really different, the firma at both periods 
containing as nearly as possible the same number of bushels, 181 qrs. at 7 
bushels, the " mensura bracini," and 16 qrs. at 8 bushels, the King's mea- 
sure, being in the proportion of 129-5 : 12S. 

Ad Grudvm. — According to Du Cange, "grudum" is barley prepared for 
making beer; but wheat being here given "ad grudum" wotdd shew, that 
the word is applicable to any kind of grist or meal. The ."^t. Paul's beer 
was brewed from a mixture of wheat, barlev, and oats. 

Ad mcn.-:uram villa'. — This measure is proDLibiy that of the Country. It 
is to be remarked that if 15 qrs. at 7 bids, to the quarter, equal, as here 
stated, 12^ qrs. of the Country measure ; it follows, that the Country 

CAMP. SOC. 5 



bu?hel ^vas larger then the Town bushel, ai;d that the- iToportion of tV.e 
Country to the Tovrn bushel was as 8|- : 7. 

Page 164*. Perjaciu.n Iraciii'i. — Factus, which is denned in Du Cange 
"a iTieasure of land.'' was used bv the Roman writers " de Re Rustica" as a 
moasure in th;e mnv.ufarture of oil. ('See Facciolati in voce.) It seems, 
therefore, to be of dinerent origin from the Anglo-Saxon fset or vat. Of the 
dimensions of this '•' factus bracini "at St. Paul's we have here a clear ac- 
count. The 16 qrs. of oats -were to be paid in eight "facti," each containing 
17 ordinary bushels; the quarter by this measurement being 85 bhls. In 
12S3 this measurement of oats appears to have been no longer in use : it 
would net; however, have been surprising if it had continued to a much 
later period, since we 5nd t:.e Legislature in \'6o\. 25 Edw. III., whilst it 
enacted uniformitv of measures, exempting the rents and fiimje of lords 
from the operation of the Ac:, and declaring that they shall "be measured 
by such micasures as they we.'-e wont in times past."

The mill of St. PauVs was probably a convenience to the citizens for 
grinding their corn ; but, without knowing the amount of toll, we cannot 
ascertain, how much corn was ground in the vear to produce in the way of 
toll this nunober of quarters. lu 1286 the " Telonium iiiok-ndini" produced 
the same amount (see p. 172).

The quantitv of fiour used in wastel and fiacon in 12S3 was 8-j qrs. and,

in addition to this, the sum of five marks was expended. Upon these 
occasions the bakers received ei^ht bo'Ise or gallons of beer. 

In irastcU. — Wastel bread was the best kind of wheaten bread, as appears 
from the Assi^^a panis et cervisifg (>:ai. of Realm, f. 190), and also from 
t'ne fact, that at St. Paul's it was bak-d onlv for particular occasions., such 
as the Festivals of St. Paul ati the Rogation days, when the Canons had 
three wastel loaves a-day. and other iDembers of the ch.urch in proportion. 
Tite cxt*-avagance of the Prioress in ;be care of her dogs is thus indicated 
in Chaucer's Prologue :

the same profit, but expressed in different teims, " de incrcmento cranarum

supra mensurara additum est." i e. the handful or shovelful thrown in 
after tlie measure is filled. In the Siatutum de Pistoribus we road, " toll 
shall be taken by the rase and not by the heap or canlel,'" and " no manner 
of gr.iin shall be sold by the heap or cantel except it he oats, malt, and 
meal.'" It is remarkable, that the e-;ce?s of measure liere spoken of, as 
amounting to twenty quarters, wus c:-rivc-d from the rcraeasuring 720 qrs. 
of oats, which produced 740.

learn, that the baker might sometimes be as blackened with charcoal, as the

Pro scijiif^f.rfi niiivs taJli^. — The account of the delivery of bread and 
beer to any partr ^as probaolv kept by a tally, consisting of two pieces of 
thin wood, hence the whole of the allowance was termed " tallia." In the 
case of absence or %ac<;ncv, the aliov.-ance due to the member was probably 
sequestered, in order to the rendering an account to the party interested. 

Pituncicc. — Allowances occasionally distributed were termed " Pittances," 
and the ofScer c^'puted to distribute them was termed " Pitanciarius." At 
Thorncr Abbev the " Pietanciarius "" possessed several •' cotagia" attached 
to his ofTice. (Rot. Hundred,- II. p. 641.) According to Da Cange, the 
proper form of the word is not Pietantia, but '• Pictantia,"' meaning an 
••illowar.ce of sn-ali value, th.^t of a " Picta." or " Pite,"' which was the

halfpence, as in p. 170, It does not appear of what this black bread 
was made: the "assisa panis'" recognises five kinds of bread, Wastel of one 
kind, Cocket of two kinds, Simnel, and Treet. The bread of the least value 
appears to have been made de oinni blade, the loaf of which was twice the

wheat here recorded, as compared with that of our own times, being taken 
as a standard of the value of money, would lead to the conclusion that 
money was then fifteen times njore valuable than at present. The 2C7/.

stalled, Egidius Filol was Prebendary of Mapesbury, Hugo de Kendale 
Prebendary of Harleston, and Gilbert de Straiton Prebendary of Consumpta 
per Mare. The name of Johannes de Wyleby does not occur in the List of 
Prebendaries in Newcourt's Piepertorium ; but PJitlip de Wylewvby was 
Prebendary of Brownsbury. 

Pe7^ iiiensuram pavbnenti — Probably the measure of the Corn-market. 
In the parish of St. Michael le Querne, near the west end of Cheapside, 
there was in ancient times a market for corn, v,hich occasioned the church

Prahenda. — Comparing the measure here given of the prsebenda, as 
containing thirty boUaC; with what is stated of tlie price paid for seven 
prsebenda of beer at p, 167, we learn that the holla and the lagena, or gallon, 
were the same measure.

Page 96. Alehedrlp. — It place of the note, Alchedrip. at page Ixxxiv 
the reader will be pleased to read as fallows : 

TLe Latin form of ahhedrip is --precaria cervisia?.'" i.e. a boon day with 
ale ; 'metehedrip being a '" preci.ria caruis." or boon day with meat. It is 
to be observed that a custom, to wiich the term precaria or boon dav of 
brewing, might to a certain degree be applied, existed at Saundon, where the 
Akerlings lent their utensils, when required for the lord's brewing: (1.143.) 
" Item si dominus habuerit i necesse). quando braciabit de utensilibus, de 
utensilibus debet quliibei eorum m:::ere de mutuo unum gate." The custu- 
marii also on the same manor lent their vats for brewing at Christmas and 
at ploughing times: {1. 14-.) *' Item si dominus necesse habuerit. quilibet 
eorum debet quotiens dom.inus braciabit ad Xatale Domini, et ad precarias 
carucarum, accomm-odare domino unum Vat." (I. 1-38.) '• Invcniet unam 
crnnifniani (?) ad braciandum contra Xatale Dom.ini et contra precarias caru- 
carum."

resting document containing the Articles of Inquisition relative to the 
PiO}al Forests. In the 24th articie we End the following clause, '• Quis

The text of Fleta is so eridentlr corrupt, that no apologv is necessary for

the word from the French corrper. to cut.

comments of various authors upon it, came under notice. In the Laws of 
Enc-land (p. 518) -^e read, " castellacio trium scannorum." In Spelman 
(patre 128) and in V>"i!kins's Leges H. I. 242. '' castellatio trium srannorum,"' 
and in Du Gauge ( :r, voct j " castellatio t)-ium annorum." Spelman pro- 
nounced the passa.e corrupt and obscure. 'J'he later reading, however, 
" scannorum," afford; a clue to the meaning of the v.ords and tlie nature 
of the offence, if it be accepted as a form of " scamnorum." In the 
language of Pliny and Columella the ridges formed by the plough are 
" scamna," and upon a greater scale three banks, or tiers of earth, might 
be termed scamna. or benches — and the surrounding a house with three 
such banks would n^ake i't a strong fortification, and thus be an offence 
a<rainst roval prerog.itix e. There is a manor-house near Southend, in Essex, 
the moat of which -'.rpoared to one wlio lately visited it, to be surrounded 
bv three banks, and to be an example of the '-'castellatio trium scannorum.'' 



Introduction, page x. Capitular Domeidays. 

In the Inquisition of the Manor of Sandon (I. 136), we meet with three 
entries, from which it appears that the ancient form of the term '• by copy 
of court roll," was '-per rotulationem." or "per rotulum Domesday." 
The persons described as thus holding lands were " libere tenentes." 

" Willielmus Marescallus tenet xviij. acras terras arabilis de Decano ct
